  • DFS Namespace - Move Across Forests?

    Hi all,

    I am about to embark upon a large project and am facing some issues I haven't experienced before. One of the many tasks involved is going to involve moving several file servers from one domain to another in a seperate forest.

    I am hoping to stage this process by first using the File Server Migration Toolkit from MS to first consolidate all the existing file servers to one new 2003 Server and maintain client access using the DFS Consolidation Root Wizard.

    I would then like to move this single file server to the new domain in the new forest whilst maintaining client access after decomissioning the old domain and trust.

    I'm not too familiar with what can and cant be done with DFS but I get the impression I'm going to have to migrate/move the DFS root at some point. Is this a process anyone was gone through? Is it even possible across forests or am I outta luck?

    Thanks for any advice
