Deleted DFS namespace still appears in the \\domain.local share
Posted on 2008-10-22
When i browse to \\domain.local i can still see some old DFS shares that shouldn't be there, one of them is Share100.
When you try to browse to the share, you get the error:
\\domain.local\Share100 is not accessible, you might not have permission to use this network resource ...... Configuration information could not be read from the domain controller, either because the machine is unavailable, or access has been denied.
There is a share called Share100 on our PDC (\\pdc\Share100). If i unshare the folder, then the link disappears from the \\domain.local list, but it comes back if i recreate it.
We need the share on the PDC, and I assume that it was at one point a part of DFS, but isn't any more. How do i sever the link?
