I have seen a few get the following error while trying to remove obsolete DFS namespace servers. Usually the server has been removed permanently before removing the server from the DFS namespace. More than once have I seen people being a bit to smart for their own good, by removing the namespace server using ADSIedit.
How to get:
- Permanently remove a namespace server
- Use adsiedit to cover up the misstake by removing the namespace server in the DFS configuration
- Get baffled by it still being in the DFS Managment console
- Trying to remove the server the correct way
Could not execute the command successfully SYSTEM ERROR - The system cannot find the file specified.
What to do:
Re-add the namespace server to the DFS Configuration using ADSIedit.
Use the correct way of removing an obsolete DFS root server using the correct command:
