Description odip 2004-03-31 16:00:28 UTC
When using DFS share on samba-2.2
clients like WinXP (Win2003) don't follow DFS links
e.g. we have \\server\dfs\archives ==> \\server2\soft
Client enter to \\server\dfs,
but can't change to \\server\dfs\archives and generate error

You may found this patch in samba CVSWEB
Or you may see discussion on forum

Fix: Copy patch-aa to /usr/ports/net/samba/files
Reinstall samba port
How-To-Repeat: Make dfs share \\server\dfs
Make DFS link \\server\dfs\archives => \\server2\soft
Using WinXP client connect to \\server\dfs
Try to enter to \\server\dfs\archives
You get a error !
