DFSroot Capacity Not True

Posted on 2011-10-10
Last Modified: 2012-06-27
Implemented DFS on a Windows 2008 R2 server. Since the DFSroot lives on the boot (c:) partition, the clients see the capacity of this partition and not the local target. Is there a way to fix this?

    I guess you may need to enable DFS root scalability

    Thank you both,  these instructions seem to only be for moving the target link. I don't want to redirect the link. just have the DFS namespace show the correct drive/share storage that the target link is on.

    Also to note that DFS is running in a Server 2003 domain so will be using DFS in Server 2000 mode.

    Image showing setup of DFS and what client see which is reverent to where the DFSroot lives.
