To filter the DFS link display

  5. Select Filter links by name, and then do one of the following:

    • To display all links with names starting with a certain text string, select Starts with in the list box, and then type the text string on which you would like to filter.

    • To display all links with names containing a certain text string, select Contains in the list box, and then type the text string on which you want to filter.

Notes

  • To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. If the computer is joined to a domain, members of the Domain Admins group might be able to perform this procedure. As a security best practice, consider using Run as to perform this procedure.

  • To open DFS, click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Distributed File System.

  • To display all DFS links, type a number greater than or equal to the total number of existing links in the Type the maximum number of links box, and select Do not filter links by name.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
