If that call is making a 'LANMAN' RAP call, then it is highly likely
that Samba does not implement it correctly.  Given how little this
particular sub-protocol is used, there has not been the demand for Samba
to implement it.

A comparative ethereal trace would assist in demonstrating the
difference - and you could make patches to smbd/lanman.c if indeed that
is the issue.  You might also find the Samba-TNG has a more complete

If it is an RPC call that is being used, then I would suggest trying
again with Samba 3.0, which implements more of these calls.
