How to make a Domain DFS redundant in case the main DC goes down
Posted on 2012-03-15
I asked that question before but we still have troubles with it. And today I did some testing and as soon as my main dc is turn off, the DFS freezes. Users's computers freezes because their Z: drive that points to \\mycie\masterfolder is unavalable. When I go in the DFS snapin it tells me RPC server unavailable. I had noticed that on my DC1 there was a share that contains all dfs links and dc2 didn't so I created the share and copied all subfolders to it but still it dont work.
I really tought the whole DFS think was hosted in the AD not propriatary to one domain controller.
Here's the rest of my previous question...
Is there a way to have a Domain DFS redondant by using two domain controllers.
And I don't mean to have every node with two links pointing on two different servers, but have the dfs structure still be available when a domain controller goes down.
