DFS is a Windows system designed to let administrators securely manage data across multiple servers while keeping it available to network users. DFS Namespace makes up one of the key service components of DFS, as it creates a single shared view for files located in separate servers. The updated management pack sends alerts to admins of potential DFS Namespaces health risks.

The management pack, which can also be used to monitor DFS Namespace health for client machines running Windows XP or Vista, is available for download from the Microsoft website. System Center Operations Manager 2007 is a requirement for using the update, as Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) is not supported.
