I saw a strange error testing DFS today.

When I connected to the server it gave out the referrals with the
server hostname.  Since the client wasn't configured for DNS, I had
added an entry in /etc/hosts for that hostname with the correct ip
address.

When I ping the hostname it works ... but mount still fails and in
cifs.ko I get "dnfs_resolve_server_name_to_ip: unable to resolve: ..."

It looks like a locally configured (/etc/hosts) address doesn't work
with DFS on Linux client.

Ideas?

nevermind - user error

keyutils was not installed as a dependency of cifs-utils ... so had to
install keyutils
