Active Server on DFS
Posted on 2011-02-13
I have setup DFS on 6 servers running Windows Server 2008 around a large geographical area. Each location has its own DHCP server, IP range. We then map a drive to the DFS folder location, whenever I go into properties the active server is not set to the DHCP server at the particular site that I would expect. So users are having to either go into the properties of the folder and change the active server or put up with a slow link and whinge to me.
Is there are way in which DFS will pick up which server is local automatically and assign the acitve server appropriately?
