To check status of a DFS root, DFS link, or target
Open Distributed File System.
In the DFS administration tool, click the DFS root, DFS link, or target whose status you want to check.
On the Action menu, click Check Status.
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.
