I have been getting quite a few queries recently from Partners wanting to put NetApp in place for CIFS but for customers who want to use DFS-R or create a single namespace across multiple sites. In the past I would have pointed people lovingly towards VFM, now VFM is out of the picture I was wondering how other people who delivering the DFS-R functionality.
Thanks in advance,

AutoVirt is worth checking out as a substitute for VFM. Like VFM, AutoVirt contains namespace functionality and data management tools all built together, but the namespace functionality is much more integrated and flexible.
Check out AutoVirt's swap-out program for VFM: http://www.autovirt.com/product/storagex-swapout-program.cfm

The only other solution that creates a namespace with CIFS is F5's ARX suite of appliances. If you would like to learn a little more about AutoVirt, please feel free to contact me.
