  • Uninstall DFSR

    I have been playing with DFSR on two Hyper-V virtual 2008 R2 servers and now want to uninstall from both and reinstall. When I try to remove the namespace in the DFSR management tool, I get the error "The namespace server Foo cannot be removed. Access is denied". How do I remove DFSR?

    Check your event logs for more info and try some googling.
    Is it AD integrated DFSR -- if so, is it fully replicated?

      The event logs on the two servers don't tell me much, but I'll check through again. I have a third virtual DC for the forest/domain for the 3 servers. Only the 2 member servers participate in DFSR.
      I have looked up Uninstall DFSR, but there is little out there. I'll keep trying variations on the theme.

        The problem was that I wasn't logged into the root server as domain admin. Once I was, removal was easy.
