  • Hi,

    There's an issue with some related patches for both Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2016, you'll find more information here:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4049095/value-does-not-fall-within-the-expected-range-error-when-you-change

    When creating the DFS Namespace, using the workarounds provided in the article:

    1. Try typing the FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) of the server instead of browsing for the server.

    2. Use PowerShell.

    Example:

    Create a Windows Server 2008 mode domain DFS namespace

    New-DfsnRoot -TargetPath "\\Contoso-FS\DFS" -Type DomainV2 -Path "\\Contoso\DFS"

    3. Uninstall the .NET Framework 4.7.

    Best regards,
    Leon
