Just an idea:
Why dont us msdfs just pointing to the netapp with ln -s msdfs:
And in the smb.conf  ex:

root preexec= yourscript
msdfs root=yes

At the SambaXP conference all this week, but I'll try and find some time to
look inside the code and let you know !

Ping me again if I haven't replied by Friday :-).
