I've just set up DFS on our fileserver Windows 2012 machine. I've done this so that we can better manage scripts in the near future and also I'll be building some sort of system to have our fileserver available in Azure in case something went wrong with our hardware.
So on our fileserver, there are a load of folder shares. When I set up DFS, I set up the Namespace. But in there, I am told by some 'experts' that I also need to create 'New Folder' and add the folder shares that exist in there too? Do I really need to do that?
Our namespace is \\uk.fc.local\camdfs. If I put that into my machine, the folder shares all come up so I don't understand the need for adding the folder shares into DFS management?
I've got screenshots of what I mean. Picture 1 is a screenshot of our folder shares. Picture 2 are folder shares added to DFS.
Hope I've made sense.
Thanks for helping
