I am not able to authenticate user using jcifs 1.2.1 package . My user is
not in "Backup Operator's Group" on Windows system.

jcifs.smb.SmbAuthException: Access is denied.
        at jcifs.smb.SmbTransport.checkStatus(SmbTransport.java:515)
        at jcifs.smb.SmbTransport.send(SmbTransport.java:629)
        at jcifs.smb.SmbSession.send(SmbSession.java:240)
        at jcifs.smb.SmbTree.treeConnect(SmbTree.java:154)
        at jcifs.smb.SmbFile.doConnect(SmbFile.java:850)
        at jcifs.smb.SmbFile.connect(SmbFile.java:893)
        at testclient.main(testclient.java:148)

When I put this user into the group, authentication is successful. Please
guide me any other way as I don't want to put my user in "Backup Operator's
Group" due to security reasons.

Your response is appreciable.
