We've found that if you use the FQDN the NetApp filer you will receive
the "incorrect function". Removing the FQDN seems to clear up the issue.

Hi Harald,

The 0xc0000002 "Incorrect function" error means the NetApp basically
does not like the specific operation you are trying to perform. It
could be some flags or something that it doesn't like.

Please provide a minimal test program that fails with NetApp. Provided
I can reproduce the issue with the simulator here at my end I will fix
it asap.

Otherwise, as I said before, all of the examples run fine against the
simulator here so I need to know exactly what is failing.

The GetURL.java example works fine against the simulator here:

$ java -Djcifs.properties=../user2.prp GetURL
$ cat ../user2.php

Perhaps you should get a packet capture instead. If you're not sure
how to do that, let me know and I'll walk you through it.

I assume the NetApp server is a member of a Windows domain?
