You can increase the availability of a domain-based namespace by specifying additional namespace servers to host the namespace.

To add a namespace server to a domain-based namespace
  1. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click DFS Management.

  2. In the console tree, under the Namespaces node, right-click a domain-based namespace, and then click Add Namespace Server.

  3. Enter the path to another server, or click Browse to locate a server.


This procedure is not applicable for stand-alone namespaces because stand-alone namespaces support only a single namespace server. To increase the availability of a stand-alone namespace, specify a failover cluster as the namespace server in the New Namespace Wizard.
