I am new to DFS and need to rename an existing DFS root (OldDFS$) to a new name (NewDFS$) so that it's clearer to its users. This is on an AD domain and there is no replication of the DFS data. The current DFS root points to a Domain Controller (DC1) running Windows Server 2003 R2. The actual data (links, targets?) is on another server (Server1). The data in those links (targets?) can stay in place on the same server and drives. I just want the DFS root to have a new name. I really don't want to lose any data or have to replicate it, as there is 200 GB of data in the DFS folders.
What I want to do:
Change DFS name
To DFS name
My current DFS root target is:
I have three links (or are these targets?) under the current root, none of which needs to change:
\\server1\link1$ \\server1\link2$ \\server1\link3$
How do I go about this?
