Fail to access DFS folder

It is found that we are fail to use Sharity3 to access DFS folder (there is no problem to mount/umount the DFS folder). For example, there is no content show by using ls -la command for the DFS mount point

root> ls -la /tmp/test
total 0

But it is working fine to mount the same folder with the same account and password if we bypass DFS. (ie. it is ok to mount directly to the target of the DFS link)

Please kindly advice is there any special setting in sharity3 when using DFS or what is the problem.

Thanks in advanced,
miemcos

If this is a domain based DFS share on Windows 2008, Sharity currently can't connect it. Please contact our support directly, we have a developer snapshot which fixes the issue. The fix will be in 3.8.

Can you please provide the create mount/link syntax to DFS share? No matter how many ways we tried and it says bad share name. UNC has been working fine, no issues. It is all Win2003.

If this is a domain based DFS share, please use smb://your.domain/share. your.domain should resolve to the IP address of your domain controller and the domain controller should send the appropriate DFS redirection.

1.Right-click your Dfs Root name and then click New Dfs Link.
2.Right-click \\Reskit.com\Books.
3.Click New Dfs Link.
4.Specify a directory for the link name. In this example, call the link name ART. Locate a valid Windows 2000 share anywhere on your network, and type the full universal naming convention (UNC) name in the Send the user to this network path box. Alternatively, you can browse for it. In our example, this is the Architecture share on the BR3-VAN-SRV-01 server in the Vancouver domain.
5.Click OK. You can optionally specify a comment and a time-out value. The time-out value is the number of non-use seconds that individual clients have to cache the referral, after which they must retrieve a fresh referral from one of the hosting Dfs servers.
6.Click OK

I also don't know what is the problem with and what's the main root of this issue! However, you may always ask experts! Haven't you done that?
