You can't test domain dfs with smbclient because it requires a cifs
mount. cifs will only work if you specify a specific server:
smbclient -k -U Administrator //hh3.site/dfs
ads_krb5_mk_req: smb_krb5_get_credentials failed for cifs/hh3.site at SITE
(Server not found in Kerberos database)
cli_session_setup_kerberos: spnego_gen_krb5_negTokenInit failed: Server
not found in Kerberos database
session setup failed: NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL
This of course presents no problem:
smbclient -k -U Administrator //hh16.hh3.site/dfs
Domain=[HH3] OS=[Windows 6.1] Server=[Samba 4.2.0pre1-GIT-55c279f]
and we can go on to access the share on altea fine.
