4.2.3 Distributed File System
IIS 6.0 makes use of the Windows Server 2003 distributed file system (Dfs). Dfs is a means for uniting
files on different computers into a single namespace. Dfs lets system administrators build a single,
hierarchical view of multiple file servers and file server shares on the network, making it easier for users to
access and manage files that are physically distributed across a network. With Dfs, you can make files that
are distributed across multiple servers appear to users as if they reside in one place on the network. Users no
longer need to know and specify the actual physical location of files in order to access them.
