SMB Support for the Distributed File System

The Distributed File System (DFS) feature is supported by the SMB server. For more information, see the Microsoft DFS documentation.

Currently, the SMB server supports only one stand-alone DFS namespace per system.

No configuration is required on the SMB server to use the DFS feature. You can use the DFS tools that are available on Windows systems to create and manage the stand-alone namespace in the Oracle Solaris OS.
