The main domain\server, SBS2011.local\server11 hosts all shares, users and security.
We have another domain\server, ESS2012R2.local\server12.
Both servers are on the same LAN, same IP subnet.
Can we use DFS namespace to allow users to read and write to a folder on ESS2012R2.local\server12?
If so, what AD trusts need to be created, if any?
On which server(s) do we create the DFS Namespace?
Do we use Domain or Stand-Alone namespaces?
How do you set user share permissions and security for the folder on server12?
Any other tips to make this work?
