Has anyone had success using NetUseAdd() on shares that were replica links on a Windows 2003 DFS root? In my code, I'm getting error:

pywintypes.error: (67, 'NetUseAdd', 'The network name cannot be found.')

This is my scenario:


Win2003 Server hosting DFS root #NTS-03
\\NTS-03.central.purdue.lcl\MI


Win2003 Server hosting file share
\\itifs03.itap.purdue.edu\itea_zonedirs\MI

<code>

import win32net

# this works -- 
win32net.NetUseAdd(None,1,{'remote':r'//itifs03.itap.purdue.edu/itea_zonedirs/MI/TEAMDIRS/DCS 
Zone','local':'W:'})

# this doesn't work --
win32net.NetUseAdd(None,1,{'remote':r'//NTS-03.central.purdue.lcl/MI/TEAMDIRS/DCS 
Zone','local':'W:'})

</code>

Any help greatly appreciated.

-Sean.
