Drive mapping issues with DFS
Posted on 2013-01-24
Currently having an issue where users are being mapped to locations other than specified in a login script.
We have a DFS namespace setup, however we've elected to map users to specific locations using a login script. So, instead of \\DFSNamespace\share we would map to \\servername\share. What we've noticed is that instead of being mapped to the location specified, some users will be mapped to the other referral server that has a copy of the shared folder... as if DFS was deciding which referral server was the best to use. I'm not sure what is causing this.
Why would a specific mapping statement be overidden be DFS and how can this be fixed?
We're using a mix of Windows 2008 server SP2 and Windows 2008 R2.
