  • Where is DFS Pointing

    Hi all:
    Is there an easy way to know where the DFS is pulling data from?

    There are three offices, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane with a Backup site at another location in Sydney.

    The only way I can tell if the DFS points to a Non local Volume is "How long it takes to copy a file".

    Any Ideas please.

    Use the DFS management console to view your Root and link targets. The targets are the physical locations of the Root and links.

      Hi
      I realise that the console show me the Root and link Targets, BUT!, If I am in Melbourne and log on to the domain I know, by the time taken to copy a file I am not connected locally. I have then done a net use \\local-server\share and the same file copies in a flash.

      What I'm wondering is, if the local Server is not completly up to date, does it refuse the connection??
