If you can see some event log records and not others, my guess would
be that it's either some kind of "access mask" or permissions issue.

The best way to debug this sort of thing is to get a packet capture of
the Event Log Viewer looking at the target records and then compare
that to a capture of JCIFS doing the same thing using WireShark. Then
you'll see definitively if the target information is even in the
server response.
