Samba log output when trying to access a link on a DFS share
When accessing links on a DFS share the target is not resolved correctly. Instead it looks like the link is resolved to itself by parse_dfs_path, which obviously fails (see the attached log for details).
server role = active directory domain controller
host msdfs = yes
path = /var/lib/samba/dfsroot
msdfs root = yes
root@localhost # ls -l /var/lib/samba/dfsroot
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 Jan 25 11:52 public -> msdfs:horst\Public
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16 Jan 25 11:22 home -> msdfs:horst\home
The shares where the DFS links point to do exist, of course.
