  • File sharing - DFS

    Hello,

    I am just in the process of building our new AD 2003 infrastructure. Currently we have 100 users that are connected via a 'workgroup'. I plan on also installing a new File/Print server which will utilize DFS (role/permission groups). My issue is all the users are connected to the following shares:

    \Public
    \Mailroom

    We will be migrating users in some pods (5-10 users). I would like to migrate all the data over from the 2 shares listed above, but is there a way to allow the users that still authenticate on the 'workgroup' to access these shares within the newly created domain (i.e. company.ca)? I know you can't use a trust relationship between the two. I was wondering if something within DNS could be created to allow this. Would save me from using Robocopy to replicate data over every single night.

    ZT

    No, you have to create local accounts on the fileserver machines with the identical userid/passwords as on the clients which are in the workgroups.
    I would recommend you to first migrate to a domain environment and then migrate to the DFS environment.
