What do you mean? I have a Samba AD Domain Controller also acting as a file server and I connect to shares using short names, not DNS names. Once I introduce the name of the server in Explorer like \\Server it will show me all the available shares. It won't show in "Network  neighborhood" but WHO CARES?
