DFS_INFO_107 structure

Contains information about a DFS root or link, including the comment, state, time-out, property flags, and link reparse point security descriptor. This structure is only for use with the NetDfsGetInfo and NetDfsSetInfo functions.

Syntax

  LPWSTR               Comment;
  DWORD                State;
  ULONG                Timeout;
  ULONG                PropertyFlagMask;

  PSECURITY_DESCRIPTOR pSecurityDescriptor;
} DFS_INFO_107, *PDFS_INFO_107;

Members

Comment

Pointer to a null-terminated Unicode string that contains a comment associated with the DFS root or link.

State

Specifies a set of bit flags that describe the DFS root or link. One DFS_VOLUME_STATE flag is set, and one DFS_VOLUME_FLAVOR flag is set. The DFS_VOLUME_FLAVORS bitmask (0x00000300) must be used to extract the DFS namespace flavor, and the DFS_VOLUME_STATES bitmask (0x0000000F) must be used to extract the DFS root or link state from this member. For an example that describes the interpretation of the flags, see the Remarks section of DFS_INFO_2.

ValueMeaning
DFS_VOLUME_STATE_OK
0x00000001

The specified DFS root or link is in the normal state.

DFS_VOLUME_STATE_INCONSISTENT
0x00000002

The internal DFS database is inconsistent with the specified DFS root or link. Attempts to repair the inconsistency have failed.

DFS_VOLUME_STATE_OFFLINE
0x00000003

The specified DFS root or link is offline or unavailable.

DFS_VOLUME_STATE_ONLINE
0x00000004

The specified DFS root or link is available.

DFS_VOLUME_FLAVOR_STANDALONE
0x00000100

The system sets this flag if the root is associated with a stand-alone DFS namespace.

DFS_VOLUME_FLAVOR_AD_BLOB
0x00000200

The system sets this flag if the root is associated with a domain-based DFS namespace.

 

Timeout

Specifies the time-out, in seconds, of the DFS root or link.

PropertyFlagMask

Specifies a mask value that indicates which flags are valid for evaluation in the PropertyFlags field.

PropertyFlags

Bitfield, with each bit responsible for a specific property applicable to the whole DFS namespace, the DFS root, or an individual DFS link, depending on the actual property. Any combination of bits is allowed unless indicated otherwise.

ValueMeaning
DFS_PROPERTY_FLAG_INSITE_REFERRALS
0x00000001

Referral response from a DFS server for a DFS root or link that contains only those targets in the same site as the client requesting the referral. Targets in the two global priority classes are always returned, regardless of their site location. This flag applies to domain-based DFS roots, stand-alone DFS roots, and DFS links. If this flag is set at the DFS root, it applies to all links; otherwise, it applies to an individual link. The setting at the link does not override the root setting.

DFS_PROPERTY_FLAG_ROOT_SCALABILITY
0x00000002

If this flag is set, the DFS server polls the nearest domain controller (DC) instead of the primary domain controller (PDC) to check for DFS namespace changes for that namespace. Any modification to the DFS metadata by the DFS server is not controlled by this flag but is sent to the PDC. This flag is valid for the entire namespace and applies only to domain-based DFS namespaces.

DFS_PROPERTY_FLAG_SITE_COSTING
0x00000004

Set this flag to enable Active Directory site costing of targets. Targets returned from the DFS server to the requesting DFS client are grouped by inter-site cost with respect to the DFS client. The groups are ordered in terms of increasing site cost with the first group consisting of targets in the same site as the client. Targets within each group are ordered randomly.

If this flag is not enabled, the default return is two sets: one set of targets in the same site as the client, and one set of all remaining targets. This flag is valid for the entire DFS namespace and applies to both domain-based and stand-alone DFS namespaces.

Target priorities can further influence target ordering. For more information on how site-costing is used to prioritize targets, see DFS Server Target Prioritization.

DFS_PROPERTY_FLAG_TARGET_FAILBACK
0x00000008

Set this flag to enable V4 DFS clients to fail back to a more optimal (lower cost or higher priority) target. If this flag is set at the DFS root, it applies to all links; otherwise, it applies to an individual link. An individual link setting will not override a root setting. The target failback setting is provided to the DFS client in a V4 referral response by the DFS server. This flag applies to domain-based roots, stand-alone roots, and links.

DFS_PROPERTY_FLAG_CLUSTER_ENABLED
0x00000010

If this flag is set, the DFS root is clustered to provide high availability for storage failover. This flag cannot be set using the NetDfsSetInfo function and applies only to stand-alone DFS roots and links.

DFS_PROPERTY_FLAG_ABDE
0x00000020

Scope: Domain-based DFS roots and stand-alone DFS roots.

When this flag is set, Access-Based Directory Enumeration (ABDE) mode support is enabled on the entire DFS root target share of the DFS namespace. This flag is valid only for DFS namespaces for which the DFS_NAMESPACE_CAPABILITY_ABDE capability flag is set. For more information, see DFS_INFO_50 and DFS_SUPPORTED_NAMESPACE_VERSION_INFO.

The DFS_PROPERTY_FLAG_ABDE flag is valid only on the DFS namespace root and not on root targets, links, or link targets. This flag must be enabled to associate a security descriptor with a DFS link.

 

SdLengthReserved

This member is reserved for system use.

pSecurityDescriptor

Pointer to a SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR structure that specifies a self-relative security descriptor to be associated with the DFS link's reparse point. This field is valid for DFS links only.
