Windows DFS Users unable to choose namespace target - Access Denied

Dear Experts,

we have found that only local administrators are able to set active other target paths in the referral list. it seems that in a failover situation DFS refers the users to the other available path but the system doesn't refer them back again when the system is back online. the users are unable to target the other path unless they are administrators on their local workstations either, so the only way for users to become referred to the correct location is to restart.

anyone know how to

a, allow non admins to target other referral paths
b, configure the system to automatically correct the referral once the problem has been corrected (local share back online)

TIA

Hi

Sorry I don't think I made myself clear, I want domain users to be able to change the active DFS Target on a DFS Network Drive.
