Mac access to shares very slow without FQDN
Posted on 2014-08-29
I have a domain Joined Mac (10.8.5 & 10.9.4)
The windows AD is 2008 R2
The shares are on NetApp
The IP is coming from DHCP, which provides all the information including Search Domain
Now, when I go & try to access a share e.g. smb://Server/Share, it takes 10 -12 seconds to bring up the Authentication Windows,
However if I give the FQDN e.g. smb://Server.Domain.com/Share, it brings up Authentication Window immediately.
When the same exercise is done from a Windows Domain Joined computer, it works perfectly even without FQDN.
I would need to know how the same behaviour can be achieved on Mac that it works like windows client?
