Need a little advice on a DFS Namespace issue:
I bought up a new Server 2016 and robocopied all files from old 2008 Server to new
Installed DFS feature on new
Added new server as new targets and removed old server targets.
Powered down old server and all namespaces stopped working
Powered old server back up and they started working again.
DFSDiag /Testsites /Machine:NewServerName
Success: The site associated with the following host name is consistent on all accessible domain controllers: NewServerName
DFSDIAG /TestSites /dfspath:\\MyDomainName\filestores /full
Success: The site associated with the following host name is consistent on all accessible domain controllers: OldServerName
Validating the static site association by accessing the registry.
Success: The static site-association of the following host name is consistent with the site-association in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS): OldServerName
I have logged into ADSIEdit and there are no Orphaned DFS Entries
We are using DFS just for namespaces, no replication, I believe the namespaces are correctly sitting on the domain but I need to get rid of the pointer to the OldServerName and make sure that it can still see the NewServerName.
Your help as always is greatly appreciated.
