It sounds like maybe that init-param is being ignored. Make sure you
fully restart Tomcat after making changes to init-params. JCIFS
properties are global statics that are loaded once when classes are
initialized so even though some containers are smart enough to
re-initialize things after updating an app, you still need to
completely restart the container to reload those global statics. To be
absolutely sure JCIFS properties are being read correctly, you should
really use a properties file set with -Djcifs.properties=file.prp from
the Tomcat command-line.
