Description Christoph Kaegi (mail account dead) 2007-12-06 03:43:36 UTC
Declaring the [homes] share as DFS root doesn't work.
When trying to follow a dfs link from the homes share,
the client says "network path not found"

Placing the same link into a normals DFS enabled share
works ok.

Trying to follow a dfs link in a user home directory (created through the [homes] share) with smbclient yields NT_STATUS_PATH_NOT_COVERED.
