Name Description
DFS Namespace 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).
DFS Namespace Server Namespace servers (root targets) are servers that host a DFS namespace.
