You mean the share returns 0 and the directory returns a valid value.

Whatever the case it is a well known phenomenon that the NetServerEnum and
NetShareEnum operations do not always return complete information in which
case some fields will be zero. This is passed through jCIFS and Davenport
which manifests itself in the error that you're observing.

As for a fix, I do not plan to do anything to jCIFS as I do not believe
there is any way currently to retrieve this information. Perhaps Davenport
can compensate.
