vista clients on domain cannot write to dfs shares

Last Modified: 2012-05-06
I have an odd issue that I am not finding a lot of info on. I have a windows 2008 dfs setup (2 servers, replicating folders, using domain based dfs namespace). Only vista clients that are on the domain, when trying to connect to the dfs share, cannot write to the folders. Take them off of the domain, they are fine. XP clients are fine. Even have the vista domain clients connect directly to the server instead of the namespace, it is fine.

Any ideas?
