DFS Shares Disappear in Windows 10

Every once and a while Windows 10 will stop seeing DFS shares. I have two domain controllers and one file server - all running Server 2019. My DFS shares are structured like this:

\\domain.local\DFS\Home
\\domain.local\DFS\Share1
\\domain.local\DFS\Share2

When the glitch happens, I can only see the Home share - all others disappear. If I go to a domain controller directly (i.e. \\dc01.local\DFS) I see the shares. It's just the domain name DFS that is blank. The problem doesn't not exist on the servers. To fix, all I need to do is log off and back on. As such, I figure the problem is specific to my user session in Windows 10. There is nothing in the Event Log to indicate a problem. It may be connected to heavy load as this tends to hit when I moving large amounts of data over a DFS share.

Hi,

DFS / File Services is currently not supported in the Q&A forums, the supported products are listed over here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/products (more to be added later on).

You can ask the experts in the dedicated DFS / File Service forum over here:
https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/home?forum=winserverfiles

(Please don't forget to accept helpful replies as answer)

Best regards,
Leon
