I'm having a strange name resolution problem with a cifs mount, which
I can best demonstrate using smbclient...
# host mywinsrv
mywinsrv.mydomain.net A 10.254.53.10
That's the correct IP address...
# smbclient -W mydomain -U myusername //mywinsrv/myshare
timeout connecting to 10.253.53.10:445
timeout connecting to 10.253.53.10:139
Connection to mywinsrv failed (Error NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED)
That's the wrong IP address!
# smbclient -W mydomain -U myusername //10.254.53.10/myshare
Enter myusername's password:
Domain=[MYDOMAIN] OS=[Windows 5.0] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]
Specifying an IP address instead of a hostname works.
Any idea what's going on here?
