Ok, my DFS root looks like this right now \\mydomain\PUBLIC and has 6 root
targets say host1 to host6. So \\mydomain\PUBLIC has root targets looks like
root target: \\host1\PUBLIC
root target: \\host2\PUBLIC
root target: \\host3\PUBLIC
root target: \\host4\PUBLIC
root target: \\host5\PUBLIC
root target: \\host6\PUBLIC
Under \mydomain\PUBLIC I have other links with replication setup and running
just fine. Each links also has 6 target. Something looks like this
For some reason I need to change the hostname host6 to host7. After done
this, root target and link target for host6 still pointing to host6 rather
than host7. So the referral does not work any more when users need to refer
to the new host.

After changing the hostname of a root target, the metadata in DFS does not
update automatically. So now I have an outdated namespace server point to
the old hostname and several DFS links with outdated folder target inside.
How to fixed this without starting the file sync. all over again?
