Hi All

Quick question regarding creating a new DFS root. I have an existing DFS root which is \\domain\profiles\ which I have created 3 links.

I now want to create a new root but I want to make sure It wont effect the existing one. If I right click on the top level and select "New Root" am I right in thinking this wont effect my existing root tree?

You can create a new domain based DFS root without issue. I personally run two in my environment. There is a limitation to the number of stand-alone DFS namespaces that can run under Windows 2003 Standard. That limit is 1, but you don't have that limitation when running on domain controllers.
