Resolve Order in jCIFS

Ghouse, Sherjeel
Resolve Order in jCIFS

Does anyone know if the DC specified in LMHOSTS file becomes unavailable, Will jCIFS try the WINS in web.xml as a fallback mechanism to resolve domain names. This is assuming resolveOrder = LMHOSTS, WINS.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Sherjeel

No. Once the name has been successfully resolved the lookup is complete.

The only retry/fallback type of behavior in jcifs is:

1) if a server specified in jcifs.netbios.wins is not responding the
   next one is tried if specified OR
2) if the Filter specific property jcifs.http.loadBalance is not false and
   jcifs.smb.client.domain is specified and WINS returns multiple addresses
   for the specifed domain and the chosen server is not responding, then
   the next server in the list will be tried.
