Q. Where is fault-tolerant (i.e., domain-based) Dfs information stored?

A. Unlike standalone Dfs roots and namespaces, which store their information in the registry, domain-based Dfs namespaces store their information in Active Directory (AD). The exact location in AD is the DFS-Configuration object--yes, it's one object--which is why any change to the Dfs structure causes the entire Dfs namespace to be replicated to all domain controllers (DCs) in the domain AD partition's System container. You can view this object by using a tool such as ADSI Edit.
