This object monitors whether an administrator created a DFS namespace and placed its root directory on a volume that uses the FAT file system. It does so by monitoring the System event log in Event Viewer for the presence of DFS Namespaces event 14504.
This can occur if while creating a namespace, the namespace administrator changes the local path of the shared folder storing the namespace root to a location on a volume that uses the FAT or FAT32 file systems. These file systems do not support reparse points, which are the foundation of DFS Namespaces.
To resolve this issue, perform one of the following tasks:
Recreate the namespace on a volume that uses the NTFS file system.
Use the Convert command to convert the FAT or FAT32 volume to an NTFS volume.
Reformat the volume by using the NTFS file system.
