Microsoft DFS security issue

Postby guest » Wed Jul 28, 2010 7:51 pm

If a client is experiencing security-related problems with a Dfs link, check the following:

First, identify the actual shared folder to which the client is gaining access. See "Tracking Shared Folders" earlier in this chapter.

Be aware that users might not see objects at intermediate points in the Dfs namespace if they do not have access to them.

Because ACLs are applied to the actual shared folders, verify client connectivity to the physical shared folder and troubleshoot the security access problem as if the user were gaining access to the folder through the physical namespace (that is, confirm User account, check ACLs on the shared folder and files, check group membership, and so forth).

If the Dfs link has a replica set configured, be aware of the latency involved in content replication. ACLs might have been modified on one replica but not yet been replicated to other replicas.
