DFS - Override the Referral Ordering - Folder Targets

Do you set this 'Advanced' option? I just have 1 Domain, 2 Sites. Or do you Normally leave it Unchecked?

Hi @mikevaccaro-5966,

This entirely depends on how the organization looks like and how the infrastructure is set up.
In general leaving it unchecked (default setting) is what most my customers use and what I've been using, only in certain scenarios where there are many sites worldwide, you might want to set override referrals.

Best regards,
Leon

Thanks Leon, I checked mine because i thought it makes sense, but I ran into trouble.
When my 'First among all targets' Server went offline, my users had trouble connecting to the other DFS Folder Targets (you could manually connect them, so the targets were working). When I put the Server back online all was good (took about 10-15 mins) for all to get back to normal.
I believe it's because of that being checked. I'm going to Uncheck them now.
