This one is a little strange, and not sure if this is the right forum. We have two main 2008 R2 DFS namespace servers that also host a number of links / targets to various shares. One of them currently has all namespaces and links disabled.
No matter what script or WMI utility I use to browse the instances of Win32_DfsTarget remotely on the disabled server, I get no results. However, if I run any of those scripts or utilities locally on the same server all of the instances show up. Running the same against the enabled server, returns all of the instances locally or remotely.
All other WMI classes seem to respond fine from that server, it seems specific to Win32_DfsTarget. The end goal is to enumerate the targets on either server remotely, but this is obviously a snag in that plan. It won't be much use if we don't get the disabled links. Has anyone seen this before, or have any suggestiosn on why this class does not appear to work remotely when the targets are actually in a disabled state?
Extra bonus points if somone can point me in the right direction for a WMI method or COM object that would let me enable/disable DFS links or namespace server via script. Thus far I think I'm stuck wrapping a script around DFSUtil to accomplish anything like that.
