Connections to CIFS service via DNS alias kills other sessions
Currently, when clients connect to the CIFS service via DNS alias,
other connections from the client get closed by the server.
There is a legacy feature in the CIFS protocol where a client can indicate in its connection request that it believes it has no other connections to this server.
(In the protocol, this is "vcnumber==0") Historically, servers would close any other connections from this client when getting such a request. This is no longer advised, and most other servers don't do this anymore, at least not by default.
