Hi all,
I'm trying to implement a DFS scenario, but i'm not sure if it possible.
What I would like to do is something like this.

We have a central office where a PDC is to be located, and other offices
with one BDC server each.
The Domain uses Samba+LDAP.

I want to create a \\netfiles share with dfs links to the other offices.
Something like


My question:
Can I create a structure where every server can act as \\netfiles, and in
case the local server goes down, the clients go and try to connect to
another \\netfiles service providing server?
I think this is called DFS DOMAIN ROOT by Microsoft.
Is this possible? Will it be possible in a near future?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Best Regards,
Bruno Guerreiro
