ITs a problem with netapp filer : ONTAP

by MR 'T' In reply to Cant access DFS resources ...

Bug Detail
Bug ID 174785
Attempting to mount a filer's CIFS share with a Microsoft Vista client (Beta 1) will result in a failure when using Kerberos authentication.
Bug Severity 2 - System barely usable
Bug Status Fixed
Product Data ONTAP
Bug Type CIFS

The Microsoft's Vista Operating System is unable to mount CIFS shares from a filer when Kerberos authentication is specified.
This occurs when the user specifies a DNS name when creating the network connection on the Vista client (e.g. net use * \\filer-name\share).

Create the network connection using the IP address of the filer instead of the DNS name (e.g. net use * \\x.y.z.q\share). This will cause NTLM authentication to take place.
