Setting Up a DFS Root

As discussed previously, there are two types of DFS roots that integrate with Active Directory: Standalone roots and Domain roots. The wizard begins by asking which type of root is required, and although there are additional steps for the Domain root, the process is similar in both cases. Whichever type of root is chosen, the first step in the setup process is to select the server where the root will be hosted. If an Active Directory root is being created, the Domain is selected as a preliminary step in selecting the server. Figure 5.4.2 shows this process. Note the message in the dialog box, saying that a server can host only one root.
