I have a domain server mydomain.com and a DFS server which is part of mydomain.com. DFS server has a share with namespace //mydomain.com/Datashare, which points to a TestData folder inside the machine. TestData has few files 1.txt,2.txt. When i access my DFS share on a windows machine it mounts the share and shows the folder TestData with files 1.txt and 2.txt. When I access same share on my Mac machine it mounts the share and dispalys TestData folder. however it does not show any file inside this folder. Someone discuss a solution of setting same search domain on Mac machine as AD sets on windows but that solution does not work for me.

    Can Apple, Linux, and other non-MS operating systems connect to DFS Namespaces?
