[cifs-protocol] Identifying Matching Share Subtrees

Thank you for your help, Jerry.

One more question, if you don't mind - Suppose I have a share, X.
Through pure CIFS, is it possible to obtain the local path of that
share?  If not, will pure CIFS provide some sort of UID of the local
path that would allow me to compare it with other shares possibly
pointing to the same location?

Thanks, again!

Most do since the srvsvc calls are the only way that I

If the CIFS server supports participating within a Windows
domain, you have to support some level of MS-RPC.
