Netapp Clustered ONTAP 8.3 CIFS issue
Posted on 2016-08-26
We have a CNAME "DOCS" that points to a CIFS Vserver that works fine in PROD. When In DR mode using a snapmirrored destination that uses the exact same DNS servers, the Win10 or 2012 server clients are not able to access \\DOCS in the DR system, yet the IP \\10.0.50.55 works. \\DOCS.domain.com.\ [with a period behind the COM] works as well. Why do IP addresses, FQDN with PERIOD, and A record names work, but the ONE "DOCS" CNAME does not??? Other CNAMES work as well. Win7 clients do not have any issue in DR system.
