DFS is not a disk system, it is used for combining folders from one or more
servers under a root folder and distribute them to the users. Is your server
a Domain controller? If not, than this is the reason because you don't see
the Distributed file system under the Administrative tools. You have to install
the adminpak.msi to your server and you will see the additional tools.
