Cifs Setup for Vfiler Incorrectly Duplication Machine Name in DNS Address Space

I have been troubleshooting a issue with a inhouse script we use to create Cifs shares for our user personal directories. I am using Vfilers  as  fileservers for my sites which are in a Windows 2008 R2 Functional level Active Directory. When I run CIFS Setup in a Vfiler it is duplicating the DNS name of the vfiler in the DNS address space. I am running Data Ontap 8.1 7-mode. Can anyone help me with this issue?  See illustrations below


1) In active directory container I manually create the computer object for the vfiler

2) After going through Cifs Setup on vFiler and which I select use existing active directory computer object somewhere in the process the computer name is getting duplicated (I removed our domain name for security purposes) in the DNS name attribute.

Does anyone have any ideal of why this is happening? Where might I go to try and troubleshoot this?


I appreciate the help.
