On my FC14 desktop I try to mount
sudo mount -t cifs //mydomain.local/DATA/Users/James /home/James/WinHomedir/ -o user=James,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777
This will generate :
mount error: could not resolve address for mydomain.local: Unknown error
returns the 2 (!) IP addresses of the Windows domain controllers that host this DNS domain, as well as the name spaces.
In addition, when I replace "mydomain.local" with one of the returned IP addresses
, the mount works without fail.

The last two lines were added, based on a suggestion in a forum, and this may or may not have led to the entry in

The question is:
What needs to be done in order to have Fedora recognize the //mydomain.local/DATA Windows name space ?
I want to keep redundancy and therefore, I am hosting my DNS and namespaces on at least 2 servers.
