Distributed File System help.
Ive been setting up the shares for our new network and took the decision to use DFS.
As such, ive created some namespaces on our storage server called Home, Profiles & Drives. With each of those 3 namespaces having 'shortcuts' to UNC paths/shared folders for them.
So for example:
I was under the impression that if, in DFS, i goto the properties of that shortcut that i could change where its pointed to, thus allowing seemless moving of files around the network to the clients.
However, this doesnt appear to be possible?
This is on Storage Server 2003 btw.
Thanks in advance all. :).
Ive just been reading on technet about DFS and 'think' i hve a slightly better understanding of it.
Alot of the articles mention that i can have multiple targets for one folder, thus allowing whichever of those identical targets is quicker to access, be accessed by the client.
So, going on that: Am i correct in thinking that, lets say hypothetically, in the future, i setup another server with DFS, have it replicate off the first namespace/s, add another target in the relevent folder that has the original data in it, then delete the first target off the first server, that it will basically do what i originally thought DFS is for?
Thanks again btw. :).
