When you are browsing a Distributed File System (DFS) root by using Windows Explorer, if you select the Properties dialog box for one of the junction points, the Security tab may not be displayed.
This behavior occurs only if the name of the server that hosts the DFS junction point that you are viewing is configured with its Domain Name System (DNS) fully qualified domain name (FQDN) instead of its NetBIOS name.
This problem can occur if the buffer for the computer name is too short for the full DNS computer name.
