Error 0×80070035 – The network path was not found

In an environment with Site-to-Site VPNs and Windows 7 clients on the branch offices you can be faced with the Error 0×80070035 – The network path was not found, when users try to access file services provided with DFS shares.

The standard protocol used to access file services is SMBv1 and SMBv2, depending on legacy client and servers or current version OS client and server like Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.
