Allow DFS roots to be published

This policy setting determines whether the user can publish DFS roots in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS). If you enable or do not configure this policy setting users can use the “Publish in Active Directory” option to publish DFS roots as shared folders in AD DS . If you disable this policy setting users cannot publish DFS roots in AD DS and the “Publish in Active Directory” option is disabled. Note: The default is to allow shared folders to be published when this setting is not configured.
