    DFS in windows 2003 help access denied!

    I've got one server namely test03 (GC, DC, DNS). I created a Dfs
    domain-root namely \\test.com.vn\data then add a link on test03
    (C:\datatest).
    from workstation I can access to \\test.com.vn\data but can not create
    anything on it. It's report "access denied" when creating a new folder.


    I've already check the permission (giving full permission for everyone)
    but still can not solved this.
    I am messing with these stuff about 2 week. Appriciate much if any one
    can give me an advice. Many thanks!

    Re: DFS in windows 2003 help access denied!

    To setup domain DFS you need to:
    * Create domain DFS root (e.g. \\yourdomain.com\dfsroot) on a DFS root
    server (server1.yourdomain.com)
    * If needed, you can assign an addition dfs root server for that domain DFS
    (server2.yourdomain.com) (for redundancy purposes)
    * On both dfs root servers a local directory is needed which needs to be
    shared for the dfs namespace (e.g. C:\DFSnamespace\DFSroot which is shared
    as DFSroot)
    (there is no need to setup replication between both servers for the DFS root
    as no information should be stored right under the root folder)
    * Create a DFS link (e.g. called DFSlink1) under the DFS root and assign a
    folder (e.g. C:\DFSdata\DFSlink1 shared as DFSlink1) on a server that will
    host the data (e.g. server1.yourdomain.com, in this case it is also on the
    root server, but it can be on any other server)
    * For redundancy purposes you can add an additional DFS link target. In that
    case you add another server (e.g. server2.yourdomain.com, in this case it is
    also on the root server, but it can be on any other server) On that same
    servers a local folder is needed that should also be shared (e.g.
    C:\DFSdata\DFSlink1 shared as DFSlink1)

    One of the servers should assigned as the primary when setting up
    replication for the DFS link DFSlink1. The NTFS permissions should be
    configured on C:\DFSdata\DFSlink1 and on both servers you may need to
    configure the share permissions of the DFS link.

    On both DFS root servers on the local file system you will see something
    like:
    C:\DFSnamespace\DFSroot
    C:\DFSnamespace\DFSroot\DFSlink1

    This is just the namespace hosted on the DFS root servers. No data is in
    there and there is no need to change permissions of those folders.

    Although for w2k, it gives you an idea of what I said:

    Hi Jorge,

    Many thanks for your quick advise but after follow exactly your
    instruction a few time, I'm still facing with the problem "Access
    denied" when creating a New Folder or File... at the
    \\dfsnamespace\dfslink. (I'm already set the share permission security
    of dsflink shared folder C:\DFSdata\DFSlink1 to FULL ACCESS for
    everyone)

    Regards,
    Long

    Re: DFS in windows 2003 help access denied!

    the dfs path of the root is \\domain-dfs\dfsroot
    the dfs path of the link is \\domain-dfs\dfsroot\dfslink

    the latter is created in the DFS MMC by creating a new DFS link and
    assigning link targets/folders

    Re: DFS in windows 2003 help access denied!

    Hi Jorge,

    Wow, I did it! Many thanks for your advise, it's working now after 02
    weeks! The problem comes from my sharing dfs folder. By default windows
    2003 only accept Read Only for network users, even the Share &
    Securities properties is Full for Everyone! I solve this problem by
    enable the the Full permission for network users.

    But now I facing another issue that after I install Dfs, the dfslink
    have 02 targets on it, both targets are on DCs and if one fail, is it
    possible to config the replication topology menthod for maintain the
    dfsworkspace for workstation using?

    For my case the dfs install on DC01, dsfroot on DC01\dfsroot and dfs
    link targets point to DC01\C:\share01 and DC02\C:\share02 and now I use
    the "Full Mesh" topology replication menthod. The system working fine
    but, if one of the DC01 or DC02 go down, the dfsworkspace
    (\\domain.com\dfsroot\) can not accessible from workstations! Please
    correct me or please can you share your experience about this issue.

    Many thanks with best regards,
    Long

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting.

    Regarding the fault tolerance, I suggest you user the Domain DFS Root.
    Domain root: A DFS namespace for which the configuration information is
    stored in Active Directory. The path to access the root or a link starts
    with the host domain name. Using Active Directory to publish this type of
    DFS root enables the users in the domain to browse, locate, and access the
    required share easily and quickly. A domain root can have multiple root
    targets, which offers fault tolerance and load sharing at the root level.

    To add a new root target, you can right click the original DFS root and
    then click "New Root Target". Select another server to host the DFS root.

    On your end, you can configure both DC01 and DC02 as root targets. If so,
    the DFS system can also be accessed when one of the DCs is down.

    Hope this helps.
