How to Map a DFS Share?
Posted on 2014-09-24
I'm migrating a file share server and beginning to use DFS for the first time on 2012. I'm planning on auditing all the shares and taking the time to make improvements. I like the feature of DFS and View Permissions that only allows users to see share to which they have access. However, not I realize that they can't 'map' the share from the GUI (they can only map the namespace?) - the option isn't available - why? If I'm not planning replication, what are advantages to DFS? If I can't map the shares, I'm not share it's worth the effort?
