  I can't find any reference on if linux understands multiple targets when it mounts a MS dfs share, specifically if it can failover.
I can mount a MS dfs share fine, however if the server "picked" is shutdow the mount hangs. I tried it on a recent ubuntu to discount the "enterprise" lag.

am I missing something or is it not working
