    Right todays offering

    This morning, your assistant Bull reports that one of the file servers in the domain has crashed. The replacement will arrive later this afternoon. The file server holds a shared folder which is a DFS link of a domain-based DFS root. This folder is heavily accessed by users. You instruct Bull to restore the content of the shared folder from a backup to another file server.
    What should you do to configure the DFS server and inform the users about the changes?


    A) Nothing. DFS will redirect the users to the new shared folder location.

    B) Update the DFS link, and instruct all users to access the content from the new location.

    C) Nothing on the DFS server. You must manually force a AD replication across the AD forest.

    D) Update the DFS link and do nothing else.

    I go A - I think DFS is "self-healing", transparent to the user.

    But how will it know where to link to? The way I see it is it's a completely different machine setup with different ID's and all (different name too).

    That's why I chose D.

    I agree with nugget.

    Jak, if another link was already available (link fault tolerance) then indeed the server would merely redirect the user's to this link once the first one has gone down.

    This second link in the above statement has of course been defined in Dfs.

    However, in this question there is no link fault tolerance.There is no copy of this data available other than on the backup.

    So once the new server is up and the backup restored, a new link would have to be created to the Dfs root.

    However having said that:
    I thought about the above statement and wondered what if the server was renamed the same as the previous server that crashed.Maybe you'd want to keep it the same name because of the naming scheme of your network.
    If you did name it the same as your previous server, then would Dfs recognize the server as being back online? and just carry on as normal (ie: a new link not having to be defined)

    I guess the question I need answering on that one is how does Dfs recognize where a link is from.Ip address? machine ID? Server name?

    My answer to this particular question is:D

    Correct answer is: D

    Explanation: A user who navigates through a Dfs tree does not need to know the name of the server that physically stores the resource to locate a specific resource on the network. After connecting to a Dfs root, users can browse and gain access to all resources below the root, regardless of the physical location of the server on which the resource is located.
