DFS namespace in Active directory, sharing same namespace
Posted on 2014-08-08
I am not sure if things are working as expected, or I am having a problem. (Everything is Windows 2012R2)
I have two AD domain controllers that are working fine. I have to File servers that have DFS installed.
When I browse to \\domain, I see NETLOGON and SYSVOL. In order to get to my DFS namespace, I must \\domain\namespace. I can not simply see that "namespace" when I am at \\domain.
I WANT to be able to look at \\domain, and see the shares"
I had originally thought that DFS would populate this into the AD namespace.
I know that I can install DFS on my AD servers and it will populate that namespace, but it seems that isn't recommended in everything that I have read. Besides....maybe it is suppose to be there already and isn't. Everything I am reading says it should have been there.
