Users have occasionally delays of 30sec when browsing our DFS
namespace. Connecting by UNC path to the fileserver works without
Single domain called domain1.domain.net with 10 sites all over the
world. All domain controllers are W2K3 SP1. Each site has at least one
domain controller acting as a root target. All root targets are part of
the same namespace called domain1.domain.net\dfsshare and are pointing
to their local fileserver.
All sites are correct in Sites and Services. No DNS issues were
encountered. Logon times and AD replikation are all fine.
What we found out so far:
- dfsutil /pktinfo shows that the clients which have the problem have
their local root target selected (active). Because of this I don't
assume that KB905846 is our issue.
- Network analyses with Netmon show a lot of SMB errors when the
problem occurs. Actually what happens is that the client is trying to
connect to one specific fileserver in a remote site and gets a lot of
Error Code = (52) STATUS_OBJECT_NAME_NOT_FOUND. After 30sec it connects
to the local fileserver and everything works fast and smooth. The name
of the mentioned fileserver in the remote site starts with an "A" and
therefor is the first in the alphabetic list of all our fileservers. It
seems like the client is trying to connect to first fileserver before
it connects to lokal fileserver.
Any help is appreciated
