I don't think it's that simple or clients would blindly try to get DFS
referrals all the time and we don't see that.

Definately. Worse, I can't do spit until I understand what needs to
happen. Maybe we'll run into someone who really knows DFS and they'll
instruct us. For now, I'm pulling this out of my issues folder.

Thanks for the feedback though. As GI-Joe used to say "knowing is half the
battle" :->
