[Samba] DFS Shares (Clustered)

We experience the following when we have outages or perform disaster
Our DFS Shares come from a Windows cluster with 2 servers, each one in
a different location. When the server that we have active connections
to goes offline, the server has an issue connecting to the second
server. This even happens under a controlled shutdown and startup
If we persistently try and force the server to mount the share it will
eventually connect to the second server ... this is time consuming and
Here is an example from '/etc/fstab' file :
//our.domain.com/PATH/TO/SHARE /target cifs
Servers Vary between RHEL 6 / 7 and SLES12. We patch quarterly so
various software packages are never that out of date.
Can anyone provide some assistance in this matter ?
