Thank you Mike, for your quick response.
I appreciate.

I tried setting 1st time   as  

in the tomcat command line system proerty setup fileds. (By setting under
Java options: by editing the "Java" tab running "tomcat6w.exe"  file
existing under  <TOMCAT_HOME>/bin/  )

also for 2nd time tried setting -Djcifs.properties=jcifs.properties

where actually my properties file named "jcifs.properties"  exist under
/WEB-INF/opt/   directory.

But both times, its failed (Each time I restarted tomcat 6 server after the
I am getting same error.

Where should I put the property file exactly, any idea?
