which LANDesk version do you use?
Do you use Windows Server2003 or Server2003 R2 for DFS?
Did you try the connect with WinPE or LinuxPE or DOS?
If you try DOS, it's not possible (s. DOS Loosens its Grip)
For Unix/Linux/MAC OS it depends on the version...
For W2K, XP, W2K3, Vista and PE is should work.
If it is a Windows 2000 server hosting the share there are some issues with DFS and Windows 2000 server.
I'm using WINPE running LANDesk 8.7. The DFS share relates to a box which is running Microsoft(R) Windows(R) Server 2003, Standard Edition
OS Version: 5.2.3790 Service Pack 2 Build 3790.
The annoying thing is it worked before and no changes (to my knowledge) have been applied.
I do have a workaround by putting in a dummy value and tweaking the resultant inf file but it's a pain in the backside to say the least.
Thanks for your time.
are you sure, that all servers are on the same R2 level? Did you add a new scheme in AD?
Is it possible to map the drive manually on WinPE?
If yes, can you see something below? (try to change directory)
We've made a (null session) share, copy the files to the share, give us all rights to the share and the files, map the share with WinPE (or XP) and see nothing!!!
Then we create a directory below the share, move the files to this directory, change directory (on Win PE or XP) and see all files!
This is a known 'security' feature since W2K3 by MS for such shares... :-|
Otherwise, no idea, yet... and I don't understand your last sentence (sorry...)
