The Configure Distributed File System module provides you with the instruction and server hardware to develop your hands on skills in the defined topics. This module includes the following exercises:

  • Install Distributed File System
  • Create a folder for DFS Replication
  • Verify DFS Replica

Exercise 1 - Install Distributed File System (DFS)

In this exercise, you will install and configure Distributed File System (DFS). DFS gives the administrator the capability to consolidate shared folders coming from different servers into a unified file system. Users will just connect to DFS namespace and the server will redirect the user to the server that owns the resource when changing from one folder to another.

Exercise 2 - Add Shared Folders to DFS Root

After installing the DFS Server on PLABDM01, you will now add the shared folders coming from different computers to come up with an integrated view of shared folders in the network.

Exercise 3 - Connect to DFS Share

After setting up the DFS namespace and adding shared folders on the DFS hierarchy, you will now test connectivity to DFS from a client workstation.
