Can I use DFS and Disable strict name checking at same time
Posted on 2015-01-25
I am migrating from Server 2003R2 to Server 2012R2. I have setup new DFS Namespace and replication and have successfully replicated necessary files from \\server2\... to \\dfsnamespace\...
All I have modified login script accordingly (yes will be moving to GPO redirects shortly)
My concern is that I have a few laptops out there not attached to the domain and are using UNC drive mappings, can I disable strict name checking on the new server and modify DNS to direct server2 to IP of server3 (DFSNamespace server), what effect will this have on DFS?
Just thinking outloud as I type here...I suppose I need to remove Server2 from the DFS replication before I make the DNS change. But aside from that any one see any other issues here?
