  • DFS Domain not working properly

    Hello, I have 2 windows 2003 servers setup with DFS Domain Name Space.
    I have Server1 and Server2 they are both DC and the shares are on Server1.
    I setup Root Targets to point to Server2. With both servers up i can access the shares from serverdomain dot local \ share If i shutdown Server2 i can still access the shares but if i have only Server2 up and server1 down then i can not access the shares.

    Am i missing something?

    If the shares are only on server1 and it is shut down, it is not really surprising you cannot reach them

    You need to create another folder target on Server2 and set up DFS replication to maintain two identical copies
