How to monitor client-side SMB automatic node referral information using a Windows client

To determine what referrals are made from the client's perspective, you can use the Windows dfsutil.exe utility.

The Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) kit available with Windows 7 and later clients contains the dfsutil.exe utility. Using this utility, you can display information about the contents of the referral cache as well as view information about each referral that the client is currently using. You can also use the utility to clear the client's referral cache. For more information, consult the Microsoft TechNet Library.
