Hi Nikhil,

I'm not absolutely positive I know what you're talking about but if
you're talking about walking through IPs for a DFS target to find a
node that has the desired object and generally be more robust about
finding objects in poorly maintained DFS volumes (eg not replicating
properly) then no, there are no plans to fix that. I don't think its
even on the TODO list. Almost half of the issues on the JCIFS TODO
list are directly or indirectly related to DFS so it's something that
needs to be really studied and re-factored. Meaning it's probably an
item for the infamous "2.0" release.
