[jcifs] ShareSecurity with OverlandStorage Server aka SnapServer

Hi All,

We are currently working with a client using an overland Storage appliance
aka SnapServer running Guardian OS. Jcifs seems to work ok, except it does
not seem to return the correct share security information of the Shared
folder. The same application when used in a windows environment works
absolutely fine and returns the correct information.

The client's appliance is integrated with a AD and the shared permissions
are applied to security groups from the AD. Jcifs seems to ALWAYS return the
everyone group even when the share security does not have everyone listed in
the Allow permissions.

Can anyone help please? does anyone know anything about SnapServer and why
the share security may not be working? I would have thought the CIFS
protocol will be the same regardless of the platform.

Any help, guidance, pointers  would be much appreciated.
