Description Eric PEYREMORTE 2006-01-23 06:08:24 UTC
When i use smbclient without "msdfs root = Yes" in [homes] in smb.conf :

smbclient '//samba/homes' -c'dir' -U 'peyremor%*******' -W 'ADMINISTRATIF'

all is ok the directory listing appears

When i use smbclient with "msdfs root = Yes" in my [homes] declaration(in smb.conf) with the same command line as above, it fails with error :


ps : - There is no msdfs link in my home dir when this error appears, and it doesn't change when there is one.
     - when i create my msdfs link in my home it works with my windows 2000/XP clients.

If you connect to //server/username, this is fine.
Comment 2 Eric PEYREMORTE 2006-01-25 09:04:22 UTC
The problem i have is with smbwebclient.php, you define the share you want to allow people to log on -> [homes]

fixed in 3.0.23

I still have the same problem with 3.0.23c.(both client and server). Connecting on //server/login is ok but not on //server/homes when [homes] is a dfs root.

Sorry to annoy you Jerry but i still have this boring dfs bug... MAybe you have a solution ?
Comment 7 Eric PEYREMORTE 2007-02-15 10:07:10 UTC
In fact i used the smbclient 3.0.24 with an old 3.0.22 server. I though the problem was due to the client. With 3.0.24 both server and client it is ok.
