Mac AFP clients can not see mac files synchronized by dfs

Anyone have experience with this?

I have 2 windows 2003 servers running dfs. They are synchronized files
each others. The files include mac files. I can see and open the mac
files on the primary server well (using AFP), but not in the other
server. I cannot see any mac files when connecting to secondary server
using AFP. I can see them using SMB but the files can’t be opened.

Anyone can help me solving this problem?

If you're using Microsoft's File Services for Macintosh, it is not made
to work with dfs.

You will need to look into a third party product such as ExtremeZ-IP
from http://www.grouplogic.com. I believe it has this capability.

Hope this helps! bill

Bill's note on DFS and SFM is correct, and the same limitation applies to
clustered shares as well. Regarding SMB mac clients I'd expect this is more
a security settings issue. Mac clients do not map permissions one to one
with Windows servers. Please give the SMB share a try with a different set
of security settings and let us know how it goes.
