Can Samba mount a DFS share, using \\DOMAIN\dfs, rather than \\COMPUTER
The following command successfully lists all the shares on a domain
controller, the same as \\DOMAIN does on Windows. One of the shares
returned is "dfs" which is the root of my dfs tree:
smbclient -U administrator -L domain.example.com | grep Disk
So, I tried to mount "dfs" using the various commands below (errors
are in ""), none of which work. Is this impossible, or am I missing
mount_smbfs -I domaincontroller.example.com //
"server name 'example.com' too long"
mount_smbfs -I domaincontroller.example.com //administrator@domain/
"mount_smbfs: unable to open connection: syserr = Connection reset by
mount //administrator@domain/dfs /mnt
"mount: //administrator@domain/dfs: No such file or directory"
mount_smbfs //administrator@domain/dfs /mnt
"mount_smbfs: can't get server address: syserr = Operation timed out"

mount_smbfs is FreeBSD's client-only implementation from base, and as
such not part of samba. So, you'll have to figure out how to invoke
samba to mount it instead. I don't have a samba installation here so I
can't provide more detail, sorry.
