How to identify who is using DSF links

As part of domain consolidation we are trying to decommission a domain and migrate the users to a different domain (same forest).  Users in the old abc domain have been accessing shares using \\abc\Files\filename...  These dsf links have been copied to the xyz domain with new shares in the form \\xyz\abc\Files\filename...  We would like to identify anyone using the old dsf links and have them update their links in shortcuts, documents, whatever before we break the links.  I've been trying to use Security Event 5140 but have been unable to identify who is using the old dsf links.  Does anyone have a solution to how to find users who will be affected when we delete the old links?

You can look at computer management shares on the DFS target servers to see who is connected.

dfsutil /PktInfo will give you the information you're looking for, but you need to get dfsutil for the applicable client, either from the RSAT for Windows 7 or from the W2K3 Support Tools for WinXP. Run the command on the client and it will show you the active target. You can also right click on map drive so that you will get info which DFS server is used.

Instead I will recommend to disconnect the map drive of old dfs link and map with new one by Group policy if any.Temporarily disable the old target server from old DFS namespace. So that you will get complains if users are using it or manually something is mapped to old link and you can rectify the same as per requirement.

Hope this helps
