I have a server 2012 R2 running DFS.There is also another server 2012 r2 that has a share on there using DFS as well. I have 4 DC's, 2 onsite and 2 at another site. Everything was working correctly right up until I ran updates to all my servers and reboot them to apply updates. Now I am getting people randomly telling me that they cannot connect to shares when signing in. After a few reboots they could. I have checked DNS and it looks good. When a user is at a broken state, What always works is the home drive which is applied on the profile tab in AD. That is referenced to a dfs share. What sometimes works after a few reboots is the logon script that has the rest of the peoples drives that they haven't been getting consistently. Does anyone have an idea of whats going on. Thanks a head of time.
