DFS Links permission
Posted on 2009-07-11
I have created a folder and shared that as the DFS Root. That is working. All users can browse to it and create files etc etc
However, When I create a DFS link, i keep getting told that it is inaccessbile and check my permissions. I have given full rights and did it ten different ways but no luck.
When I create a DFS link does that shared path already need to be created.
Eg, the dfs root is Departments
its on c:\departments
I created a sub folder c:\departments\profiles (where I want all my user profiles to be stored). When I add a link in DFS and point it to profiles, no one can browse to it. Even at the server I can't browse to the folder after creating the DFS link, though I could browse to it before i created the DFS.
I am throughly confused. FYI, i set all permissions to everyone = full just for testing.
What am I doing wrong?
