Had to mount my DFS share to my Linux Server and this is how I got it done:


  1. Create mount point (in my case I made /mnt/dfsfolder)
  2. Yum Update (doesnt hurt to have the latest and greatest of everything)
  3. Yum Install Samba
  4. Yum Install samba-client-3.0.33-3.7.el5
  5. Yum Install samba-common-3.0.33-3.7.el5
  6. Yum Install Keyutils (you need keyutils, dont skip it)
  7. after all is said and done, the output of uname -a is
  8. edit /etc/samba/smb.conf and change workgorup to PINCHII-DOMAIN (you may not even need this)
  9. edit /etc/request-key.conf and add:
  10. Now try manually mounting the Share:

    (This should prompt for a password )
  11. If all goes well, then you are done
  12. If you are getting errors, I suggest you check out the system log (dmesg | tail)

And now you are done!!
