Forcibly Remove Dfs Nameserver

The following steps can be used to remove a Dfs nameserver that no longer exists in your environment.

  1. Log on to a Dfs server
  2. Open an elevated command line
  3. We’re going to use dfsutil with the following parameters:¬†dfsutil diag unmapdomroot \<domainname><DFSname> \<DFSrootserver><DFSshare>
    1. As a sample: dfsutil diag unmapdomroot \\DfsRootName\DfsFolderName \\Server_to_remove\DfsFolderName
  4. No need to reboot just wait for replication
