DFS cluster migration to VNXe CIFS server RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi team,

    we have a DFS cluster and users are pointed to domain based UNC

    Domian.Local\Root\department\UserFolder

    note: each users directly mapped to his own folder manually not GPO not script around 1000 Users :(

    now we have new CIFS server names HQCIFS.Domain.Local\Root\department\Userfolder

    any idea to after doing the migration to keep the folder's mapping as is without re-mapping it again, meanwhile to connect with the same name?

    i'm thing to rename the CIFS server to be same DFS server cluster name after disabling the cluster but if i did this 

    users will access \\HQCIFS.domain.local\Root\... whoever we need it to be \\domain.local\Root 

    any idea's?

  • Hi,

    I cannot confirm if the CIFS server supported to be added as a DFS target. If not, you may not able to get it recognized as a domain based DFS namespace.
