Description Jeff Layton 2008-08-26 08:11:49 EDT
As part of the CIFS update for RHEL5.3, I've gone ahead and backported the patches to allow DFS support. This feature is fairly new upstream though and I don't think we want to "officially" support it yet. Opening this BZ to track enabling this as tech preview.

The actual work for this was done in bug 453462.
Comment 2 Jeff Layton 2008-09-13 15:00:14 EDT
Committed with CIFS update in -113.el5
Comment 5 Juanjo Villaplana 2008-10-10 13:50:18 EDT
At our site we are very interested on getting DFS CIFS mounts to work. Please let us know when a testing kernel is available.

Comment 6 Jeff Layton 2008-10-10 14:37:23 EDT
I have some test kernels with these patches on my people page:


...DFS also requires the cifs.upcall program, that should be part of the samba-client package in 5.3.
