Description Michael B. Allen 2003-10-08 22:33:32 UTC
From Windows NT 4.0 sp6 selecting Start > Run and entering a path like 
\\miallen3\dfs\path\test\IE\IE3\EN\filelist.dat fails with a cryptic dialog. 
The dfs share is a DFS share that points to a directory with a 
subdirectory 'path' which has the link 'test -> msdfs:rsch-nyc-19b4\wefa\test'. 
If I back off to \\miallen3\dfs\path\test\IE\{IE3,IE3\EN\} both cases also 
fail. Backing off to \\miallen3\dfs\path\test\IE\ succeeds. I have a packet 
capture of this that I will submit to someone directly if requested. What it 
shows is that NT does not try to do any DFS-ness but goes strait for the Query 
Information Request which fails with STATUS_OBJECT_PATH_NOT_FOUND. So Samba 
only emits the STATUS_PATH_NOT_COVERED when I back off to \\miallen3
Comment 1 Michael B. Allen 2003-11-06 19:33:06 UTC
Confirmed on 2.2.8a.
Comment 2 Gerald (Jerry) Carter 2004-02-17 08:56:09 UTC
Sorry, but the 2.2 is not under development any longer.
If you can reproduce this bug against the latest 3.0 release, 
please reopen this bug and change the version in the report.
