Can't access Namespace share through Namespace on server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    To clarify my question, I have set up DFS on two servers which are up and running properly. For some testing I have limited access to the share named "FileShare" to Domain Admins (which I am a member of) to both servers. If I access the name space from my client (client1) I can get right in and do anything I want. However, the problem is when I am logged into my server "server 1" or "server 2" and I open file explorer and type the Namespace into that, it asks me for a user name and password which it won't accept. But if I open up File Explorer and go to the location of the file, it does not ask for a password and let's me right in to do what I need and replicates almost instantly to my other server. 
    This isn't so much a stoppage as much as I find it peculiar and wonder if anyone else has had a similar issue and was able to resolve it besides adding their admin account directly into the security tab.
