Can't access DFS shares on the DFS server
Posted on 2014-01-08
DFS has been running well for 2 years. It is configured as domain based.
Issues popped up this week with users not having access to DFS shares.
From the users pc, the actual shares from various servers were available.
After a reboot of DFS server (W2K8r2) and the DC server (W2k8r2), users began regaining DFS shares properly.
On the DC, while creating a user account with AD, a drive mapping could not be created using DFS mapping. After checking, I found the DFS Server and the DC Server were unable to see the DFS shares, but the actual shares were mappable.
I can use my AD account to log into other servers and/or pc's and the DFS mappings appear properly. I can't log into either DFS related servers and see DFS mappings.
This also makes it impossible to use the DFS management tool from the DFS server.
I was hoping someone might have some troubleshooting tips. Thanks
