This should be a pretty straight forward procedure.
Do this after hours of course.
Perform a system state backup first.
Validate the status of the DFSroot and links are enabled and OK.
stop the dfs service
stop the server service (browser service will also stop)
Create a new folder on the drive letter that is your SAN.
open the registry and browse to HKLM\system\CCS\Services\LanManServer\Shares
Modify your DFSroot share entry to point to the new target folder.
Start the server service and browser service. (validate the new folder is
now shared with dfsroot share name)
Start the DFS service.
Now open your DFS admin GUI and check status on your root and links.
You are done.
