Consider the following scenario:

  • You have a computer that is running Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • You use the Dfsutil.exe utility to export Distributed File System (DFS) configuration data from a DFS link. For example, you export DFS namespace information to a file by using the following command:
    dfsutil /root: dfs_root /export: <file_name>
  • You use the same utility to import the exported data to the DFS link.

In this scenario, the discretionary access control list (DACL) of the DFS link is corrupted after the importing operation.
