Hi all,

I have DFS namespace installed on my DC and a file server, now we would like to install a new DC (backup of namespace server) and in the control panel I cannot find the DFS setting to install it. Can you please guide me?

I am not finding the settings under: Manage your Server & Windows components.

Could it be that since my previous DFS namespace in on Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise x64 SP2 i can't find it on my new DC Windows Server Standard x32 SP2?
