Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 867456
DFS is not marked as Tech Preview in RHEL 5 documentation

CIFS DFS is a Technology Preview in RHEL 5 but the documents don't state so. It was released as Tech Preview in RHEL 5.3:
But the documentation post RHEL 5.3 -release notes and technical notes- doesn't mention it is still a tech preview. This may confuse customers to think that it is fully supported in RHEL 5 at the moment, which is not the case.
I'm opening this against 5.9 but I guess we need to fix all documentation from 5.3 onwards. Let me know if you need any clarification.
Fixed! The following note has been added to all books:
Starting with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3, CIFS supports Distributed File System (DFS) as a Technology Preview.
Thanks for reporting!
