I currently have 4 Domain controllers which are providing authentication, profiles,home drives, etc. All the data is hosted on a SAN (hitachi SMS 100) rather than physically on each server. My Question is rather than having all the users home drives being mapped to. We are also running CC3 currently.
Could I address them in some way similar to
\\school domain\sharename \
Hi, ok I have the "primary DNS suffix" do I need to change the "forestroot.local" to something specific for the site ?

yse forest.local is an example
Imaginary wide area network. Based on a windows 2003 wan
Education dept wan is called eduwan.local
You’re a school within that wan. You school is called school1 so you’re a subsite of the forest root eduwan.local so your primary dns suffix would be
\\ school1.eduwan.local ( The .local suffix indicates that you are not an Internet entity i.e .com)
A way of setting this up would be to use DFS for your shares. Do you use/know of DFS as this would be a way forward an example drive mapping to a users home folder
I’m afraid to give you an explanation of DFS would take to long but if you have the time look into Distributed File System which will allow you to organise multiple shared folders or targets into a logical name space of roots and links

Ok thanks for that, now for some reading up on DFS.
Does anyone use DFS on CC3 ?
