Windows 7 Explorer to OES2 via CIFS will not expand DFS Junctions

Environment

Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES 2) Linux
CIFS
Distributed File System - DFS
Windows 7

Situation

This problem is best described using the following example:



The Y: drive is mapped to a NetWare DFS junction and, as shown in Explorer's left-hand pane, can be expanded to show the junctions underneath (share01, share02, etc).  This is all working correctly.

The Z: drive is mapped to an OES2 Linux DFS junction and, as shown in Explorer's left-hand pane, can NOT be expanded to show the junctions underneath (junction_to_Root, share01, etc).  This is incorrect.

On Z: it can can be seen that the DFS subordinates are displayed on the right-hand side so they are there but the directory structure in the pane on the left-hand side cannot be expanded.

Resolution

Fixed in OES2SP3.
