\\server\share they can access OK, but when they access via DFS they are
asked for username and password.
I have just read a TechNet article for server 2003 entitled "Best practices
for Distributed File System" which has the following
Ensure that file system permissions are set correctly.
In order for a user to access files in a DFS target folder, the user must be
allowed access to the target and to all parent folders. In addition, the
user must be allowed access to the server hosting the DFS root, and to the
link and the link's parent folders. For more information on setting
permissions, see Access control overview.
I'm confused by the reference to the "parent folders" in this scenario lets
assume that "server" has a share at C:\MiscShares\Share
Would the end users need access to "MiscShares" as well as "Share"?
And the same question for the DFS root, e.g. a root at c:\dfsroots\dfs , do
end users also need permissions for "dfsroots" ?
