DFS namespace configuration

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
Just seeting up DFS on a windows 2008 server.  It is my understanding that you can have one namespace folder have multiple targets.  I can enter the multiple targets but when I browse to the namespace share from a client I only see one of the targets and it is not the same on each client?!  

I created a namespace  \\company.org\user folder
Folder is users
I am trying to combine user directories from three different file servers so I added:

I expected to see all the user folders show up in the namespace share Users, is this not the way it is suppose to work?
