Dfsdiag TestDFSIntegrity

 

Applies To: Windows Server 2012, Windows 8

Checks the integrity of the Distributed File System (DFS) namespace by performing the following tests:

  • Checks for DFS metadata corruption or inconsistencies between domain controllers.

  • Validates the configuration of access-based enumeration to ensure that it is consistent between DFS metadata and the namespace server share.

  • Detects overlapping DFS folders (links), duplicate folders, and folders with overlapping folder targets.
