The DFS Namespaces servicing manifest packages (MUM) incorrectly include the DFS Replication service role component. For example, see the entries in the following <component> sections:
<assemblyIdentity buildType="release" language="neutral" name="Microsoft-Windows-DFSR-ServerEdition-Deployment" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" version="6.1.7600.16385" versionScope="nonSxS"/>
<assemblyIdentity buildType="release" language="en-US" name="Microsoft-Windows-DFSR-ServerEdition-Deployment-LanguagePack" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" version="6.1.7600.16385" versionScope="nonSxS"/>
These entries indicate that, when you install DFS Namespaces, the DFS Replication binaries are also installed. However, because the administrator did not select the complete DFS Replication role for installation, the servicing management tools do not show that DFS Replication was installed.
To work around this issue, after you install the DFS Namespaces role, stop the DFS Replication service, and then set the service to disabled.
Steps to reproduce.
1. Install a Windows Server 2008 R2 server.
2. Use server manager or servermanagercmd to install only the DFS Namespaces role. Do not select DFS Replication.
3. When the installation is complete, confirm by using servermanagercmd that DFS Replication is not installed:
[X] File Services [File-Services]
[X] File Server [FS-FileServer]
[X] Distributed File System [FS-DFS]
[X] DFS Namespaces [FS-DFS-Namespace]
[ ] DFS Replication [FS-DFS-Replication]
4. Notice that the DFS Replication service is now installed and running. To verify the status of the DFS Replication service, open services.msc, or run the NET START command from a command prompt.
Note To stop this behavior, you must not edit the MUM file. If you edit the MUM file, this can cause issues later, and such editing is completely unsupported. For more information, visit the following website:
