If you use DFS (Distributed File System) to host distribution points for Windows 2000 software distribution, and you have a multi-site environment, roaming users will get their distribution from their original site, instead of the site they have roamed to. This is a function of DFS, and is independent of Windows 2000 software distribution.
To change this behavior, you can:
1. Restart the client computer.
2. Enable in-site referrals only.
A DFS administrator can cause DFS to NOT provide referrals outside of the current site replicas:
dfsutil /insite <DFS_name_of_Root_Or_Link> /set OR dfsutil /insite <DFS_name_of_Root_Or_Link> /resetNOTE: If you make this change on a DFS root or link that does NOT have a replica at the site, no client at the site will be able to access the data using the DFS namespace.
NOTE: If you set this behavior on the DFS root, it is inherited by all the links under that root.
NOTE: The change does not become effective until all root replicas have read the changes.
