Hi All,

we found out that it is possible to mount 1 DFS-volume several times (Command-K, connecting to the DFS-name).
Has been tested in 10.9.x and DP 10.10.

In Finder, the volume wil be shown multiple times with the same name; but in /Volumes (terminal) the volumes will get a suffix -1, -2, -3, etc.
This can cause problems in applications that use the unix-path; saving a document on computer A can refer to assets on /Volumes/<dfs_share-1>; opening this document on computer B (that has the DFS-share mounted only once as /Volumes/<dfs_share>), will prevent computer B to find these assets.

Trying to mount the same volume multiple times through the FQDN-name of the server can't be done (Finder opens the already mounted volume); neither does it appears multiple time sunder /Volumes.

Problem is logged in to Apple; they acknowledged and said that a solution will be in a future release of 10.10.

Best Regards,
