Ok so I would like to create a share so if someone writes \\NAME they will reach a certain part of our fileshares.

Let's take for example \\FS

When this is written right now, nothing happens. So how do we fix this, how do we make sure \\FS goes to our fileserver which would be

\\company.local\company\fs

Have you taken a look at Microsoft's distributed file system? –  SpacemanSpiff Dec 6 '11 at 12:46
    
Spiff - just make that a statement, and put it as an answer :-) –  mfinni Dec 6 '11 at 12:48

I don't see any option to make it strictly \\FS there, Current setup: DFS Management => Namespaces => \\company.local\company => fs –  rkl Dec 6 '11 at 12:49

You can't. SMB connections are addressed in a \\node-name\share pattern. Even with DFS, you still use a namespace in place of the node name.

The closest you could get is making a DFS Namespace at \\domain.com\namespace.

Thanks for the reply, guess there is no work around for that? –  rkl Dec 6 '11 at 13:32
    
Not that I've ever seen. –  MDMarra Dec 6 '11 at 14:03
