[Samba] smbclient using SMB2+ against NetApp OnTap 8.2 anyone ?

So I just spent a frustrating day trying to
get smbclient from 4.2.x and master connecting
to a NetApp 8.2 box using SMB2 or SMB3 with
NTLM auth.

Short answer - it doesn't work :-(. Longer
answer - the NetApp is choking on something
inside the SPNEGO NTLMSSP packets we're sending
it - giving the error that it couldn't parse
the SPNEGO packet.

Unfortunately (and knowing bugger-all about
NetApps) it doesn't tell me *what part* of
the packet it can't parse.

Does anyone have access to a NetApp 8.2
box who knows how to get good debug info
out of the thing ?

I'll log a bug and upload successful
connect from Win7 and a fail connection
trace from 4.2.0 smbclient so we can
track this, but I'm a bit stymied without
good errors from OnTap.
