Subject Re: Not possible to add DFS root in windows share repository
Date Fri, 19 Dec 2014 12:23:04 GMT
Hi Kambiz,

The allowed operations of JCIFS differ for DFS root names vs. paths and
shares.  If you provide a path in that slot, 90% of the time it will not
properly authenticate, and getting share security will fail.   So that is
not an option.

Allowing a path type-in even when there is an error might be one thing to
work around your network problem.  But the obvious first step is to try to
fix the network.
