    DFS - can't remove or recreate an old root

    I've got DFS running OK, with three roots.

    I've tried to create a new root but I get the message:-

    Code:
    The DFS root "rootname" already exists.  Please give a different name for the new DFS root.
    There's no root of that name listed, so when I try to show the root, the one I want is in the list under "show root..." . When I select it I get

    Code:
    "The specified DFS root does not exist"
    There's some trace of the old root (I must have created and deleted it a while ago) still hanging around somewhere (AD?). How do I get rid of it?

    I can easily get round this problem by just using a different name, but would like to reuse the original name if I can.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Fixed it (partially), if anyone's interested.

    Here's the link just for the record if anyone else searches for this.
