This object monitors the initialization of namespace roots and creates an alert if a namespace root doesn�t initialize properly. This object monitors a namespace for the presence of a large number of errors. This object monitors the ability of a namespace server to access namespace data in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) and creates an alert if the namespace server cannot access AD DS. This object displays the health state of namespace servers, as found in the namespace metadata during discovery. This object monitors the state of synchronization between a namespace server and Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS). This object monitors the creation of reparse points for DFS folders and creates an alert if the creation process fails. This object monitors the state of a namespace as represented in the namespace’s metadata, and maps the state to the namespace’s entity in Operations Manager. This monitor checks whether the DFS Namespace service could initialize trusted forest information so that client computers can access trusted domains. This monitor checks whether DFS Namespaces successfully initialized the trusted domain list. This object monitors the ability of DFS Namespaces to communicate with Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) domain controllers. This object monitors the ability of a namespace server to communicate with Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) domain controllers. This object monitors whether DFS Namespaces can initialize the site support table. This object monitors the initialization of the DFS Namespace service (Distributed File System on Windows Server 2003) and creates an alert if the service fails to initialize. This monitor checks whether the DFS Namespace service is running. Namespace servers (root targets) on servers that host a DFS namespace. Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) sites represent segments of the network with local, high speed network connections. A DFS namespace enables you to group shared folders that are located on different servers into one or more logically structured namespaces. A DFS namespace consists of a namespace root and the namespace servers that host the root. Below the root are DFS folders (links), which are virtual folders that point to shared folders referred to as folder targets (link targets). The DFS Namespaces role service enables you to group shared folders that are located on different servers into one or more logically structured namespaces. Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) maintains all knowledge of domain-based namespaces. The DFS Namespace service implements DFS Namespaces functionality on a namespace server. It runs under the Local System context.
