- I'm not using DFSR. Old school FRS on Windows 2003.
- Two servers at different locations.
- Main server has Active Directory, other server is a member server.
- DFS replication is setup for both servers, but not configured. The link is
not very good and we don't want the data being replicated for this folder.
In user properties, I have configured the home folder to connect to drive J
with the path of \\domain.com\Dfs\home\username. Dfs is the root in the DFS
The problem is that if a user is created on the AD server, everything works
fine if they log into that site. When they log in, they see their home
folder. If they log into the member server, they see the DFS structure rather
than their home folder. The reason is that the home folder structure is not
replicated to the member server. If the user is created at the member server
site, the home folder structure is good here, but not at the AD site.
Without enabling replication, is there any way to have the home folder show
up at both locations? The goal is for the user to have access to the home
folder at the site where they log in.
