We have completed the investigation for your questions below.
>* in which order the domain should be returned ? if any (ie. first
>lower domain like samba.corp then au.samba.corp then brisbane.au.samba.corp)
ANS: The domain referral must include names for the local domain and may include all other domains in a random order.
>* I understand that nebios/dns name must go in couple, (ie. not return
>first all the dns name then all the netios name, but each pair
>accordingly), but what must appear first NETBIOS domain or DNS domain name ?
ANS: NETBIOS domain and DNS domain names also appear in a random order in domain referral response.
Please let us know if you have more questions, otherwise I will consider this issue closed.

Subject: [cifs-protocol] Ordering of domain in case of DFS domain referral
Hello dochelp team,
I've got a small question regarding the ordering of domain when
answering a Domain referral request as described here:
126.96.36.199 Receiving a Domain Referral Request
My questions are:
* in which order the domain should be returned ? if any (ie. first
lower domain like samba.corp then au.samba.corp then brisbane.au.samba.corp)
* I understand that nebios/dns name must go in couple, (ie. not return
first all the dns name then all the netios name, but each pair
accordingly), but what must appear first NETBIOS domain or DNS domain name ?
Also depending on the answer you'll make on the first point this
statement might need also amendment:
"MUST give preference to the NetBIOS and fully qualified names of the
DC's own domain first, and
then give preference to other domains. This ensures that a client in the
same domain as the
server will always be able to access SYSVOL and NETLOGON paths
As I understand it didn't state that the own domain of the DC must be
first, just that if the DC has a choice to make between its own domain
referral information and another domain then it should choose its own
first. Am I right ?
