DFS namespaces with targets pointing to folders within CIFS shares cannot be seen by Mac OS clients
- ONTAP 9.5
- Mac OS X 10.15
When a Mac OS X client attempt to connect to a DFS target which points to a folder in a CIFS share, which is not in the root of the share, the MAC client cannot see any files or folders.
When connecting to the root of the CIFS share directly, files and folders are visible.
