3.2.3 Initialization

When the DFS server is started:

  • It MUST notify the SMB server for reasons as specified in [MS-CIFS] section and [MS-SMB2] section The exact means of how this is accomplished is outside the scope of this specification.

  • It MUST initialize HomeDomain with the domain name of the domain to which it is joined, if any.

  • It MUST initialize DFSNamespaceList to the list of domain-based and stand-alone DFS namespaces that it hosts. This list can be obtained from DFS metadata (as specified in [MS-DFSNM]), a configuration file, a configuration store, or from other implementation-defined means.
