I'll get our DNS guy to look into it. Thanks.

comment DFS-N Fault Tolerance
Doing an nslookup on a client machine only returns information for server A. Running it on server B returns: Sever: Unknown but the correct IP address. So really it might be a DNS issue more likely?

comment Creating Group Policy defined shortcuts to local programs
Had the same error, turned out that I was pointing directly to an MS Access DB file. I had to put the MS Access executable in as the target path, and the filename as the argument. In addition, the filename had spaces in the name so in the argument field I had to surround the filename with quotes (but not the target path field which also had spaces). Once I modified it this way, it worked no problem.

comment Does installing DFS-N on two domain controllers provide DFS root redundancy?
We're looking at splitting some of our file server up, and DFS came up again and again. Several places mentioned using DFS replication to help with some of the actual moving, but my experience has been much the same in testing, replication is hard to verify and kind of kludge (leaning towards the MS File Server Migration toolkit for the move). I think we'll start using DFS using our DC's for Namespace servers and maybe not on the fileserver(s) since we won't be using replication.

I don't think we're going to utilize DFS replication, I think we'll just use DFS to make our UNC paths. We're going to do some moving of files in the background and DFS seems to be a good way of keeping UNC paths the same regardless of where the data moves to. Do you mean DFS is temperamental, or DFS replication is?

comment Slow application performance in one location
Sorry for the delay, it's a system that we can only take down on Tuesdays, when it's not being used. I tried the MTU test, and the maximum packet size I could enter on the command line was 1472 so I don't think the packets are being fragmented. I also tried an OptiPlex 980 and it worked fine in the lab, but didn't work correctly in the field.

comment GPO not setting security permissions on restart
It does seem that there is something to the 90 minutes thing. It doesn't reapply, but after leaving it for the weekend, no problem getting them to apply. I guess I'll put into the installation to do a gpupdate.

comment GPO not setting security permissions on restart
@Tubs - Actually I have restarted it sever times in a row (I believe) and it still isn't being applied. I'm testing to see if waiting 90 minutes then restarting will do it, but that's mostly a moot point I'll need to force an update with the installation.

@Greg Askew - I agree, when I do a gpupdate /force on the machine it asks to restart the computer so it could create some kind of loop.
