Yes, but only if the machine account itself can authenticate to the DFS
server.  I find that if the machine account cannot authenticate, it doesn't
work.  The client itself doesn't turn on the DFS bit in SMB_FLAGS2.  But you
say it doesn't work even for non-domain members?

I have it working for domain members as well, where I'm connecting to the
DFS server via a netbios alias that is not in AD, so it falls back to NTLM.
