The Storage Team Blog about file services and storage features in Windows and Windows Server.
We've seen an increase in customers asking about permissions required to manage namespaces. We cover this in our DFS FAQ under the question "What permissions are required to manage a namespace? How can I delegate authority to manage a DFS namespace?" It's worth a read because the permissions can vary according to the type of task you want to perform and the type of namespace you are managing. We cover everything from creating and deleting namespaces, adding links, and using Dfsutil to change various settings on the namespace. So check out our FAQ--it's a great resource!
