browsing large windows network environments

Actually with net rpc share, net command is issuing LSA calls before
trying the SRVSVC calls. ntap server is failing, and net command fails
saying "could not obtain sid for domain <domain> error:
NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED". If I try the same against windows server, it
is able to handle both.
So, I wonder are LSA calls needed in this case?

With r15098 I checked a patch into SAMBA_3_0 that does
exactly that. Can you try it?

If you can't, you might want to try 'net rpc share list',
that does the same calls.
