as far as i have looked into msdfs.c it seems to be impossible to send
a client a dfs-referral at the share level (\\fileserver\msdfs-link).
maybe there is another way to "proxy" a request to \\samba\thisshare to
i currently want to migrate a couple of nt-servers transparently for
clients. the basic idea is to setup one samba-server that offers faked
file-service via netbios-aliases and dfs-redirects to the real
samba-fileserver. unfortunatly touching the clients is a no-go.
old setup with *nt*:
client -> //fileserver/share1
planned setup with *samba*:
client -> //fileserver/share1 where share1 -> msdfs:samba-file\whatever
any help is much appreciated.
