Hello Matthieu,

I have now tried to access the netlogon share directly from the samba4
DC with both smbclient3 and smbclient, which both show the same symptom
as the Windows machine. When accessing the share via
//domainname/netlogon the connection can not be established. When using
//dcname/netlogon it is working with both smbclient tools.

best regards
