I am working with a DFS setup of the standard form \\domain.local\root. We are sharing these and to navigate to the DFS share users would type \\domain\sales or \\domain\support. How can I setup so that users can type \\domain and see all available root folders? Currently if a user types in \\domain a dialog with Windows cannot access window.
AFAIK, the netbios form of your domain
\\domain goes nowhere, but The FQDN version of your domain
\\example.org will always point to your Domain controllers. So if you want your DFS roots to show up the DNS version of your domain, your need to have all your Domain controllers host DFS root servers. You can of course create folder targets below your root, that points to other file servers.
