What tools do I use to manage DFS namespaces?

Postby guest » Wed Jul 28, 2010 8:14 pm

Three tools are used for managing DFS namespaces: the Distributed File System snap-in, dfscmd.exe, and dfsutil.exe.

Distributed File System Snap-in
The Distributed File System snap-in is available in Windows Server 2003 in the Administrative Tools folder. This snap-in provides a graphical user interface for configuring namespaces and is the only tool available for enabling FRS replication in DFS namespaces.

The Distributed File System snap-in is also part of the Windows Server 2003 Administration Tools Pack; you can install this pack on computers running Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1) or later and create FRS schedules and topologies on remote servers running Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003. For more information, see Administering Windows Server-based Computers Using Windows XP Professional-based Clients.

Dfscmd.exe
The Dfscmd.exe command-line tool is available in Windows Server 2003. Use Dfscmd.exe for basic DFS tasks, such as creating links, adding and removing link targets, and viewing the namespace. For more information about Dfscmd.exe, in Help and Support Center for Windows Server 2003 click Tools, and then click Command-line reference A-Z.

Dfsutil.exe
The Dfsutil.exe command-line tool is a Windows Support Tool. You can install Dfsutil.exe from the \Support\Tools folder on the Windows Server 2003 operating system CD. Dfsutil.exe provides extensive features for configuring and managing DFS, including those that are not available in the Distributed File System snap-in, such as root scalability mode and least expensive target selection (site-costing).

For more information about Dfsutil.exe, in Help and Support Center for Windows Server 2003, click Tools, and then click Windows Support Tools.
