We have several hundred file servers, and each server has hundreds of file shares with user home directories. I have been tasked to implement DFS so users can access their home directories using a global namespace. I have installed the DFS role, created a global domain name space and now getting ready to add folders. I am at a loss as to how to set the folder structure so users can type in \\namespace\homedir and get to their home directory. As stated there are hundreds of servers and shares which host the home directories.
The only way I can see is to create a unique folder for each share with one target, however this does not seem like a a very feasible solution. Hoping someone has done this before and could guide me.
Appreciate any ideas or suggestions you may be able to provide.
