Hi all,

We've not long had our HNAS box, and i've been seeing an odd problem adding HNAS shares into DFS.

When i add CIFS shares from our other non Hitachi NAS boxes (eg Netapp, SUN, Broadberry, Windows Servers etc), as a DFS target, it works perfectly. However when i try adding CIFS shares on our HNAS, it complains the [i]DFS Location is not available[/i][color=#444444][font=arial, sans-serif][size=1] – The network location cannot be reached.[/size][/font][/color]

[color=#444444][font=arial, sans-serif][size=1]If i ignore the error and finish configuring the DFS share, then test it, it works. Has anyone come across this odd behaviour?[/size][/font][/color]
