I'm using Microsoft api's for CIFS shares:
GetNamedSecurityInfo - get the share's permissions
NetShareGetInfo - get the share's type(indicates if it's an administrative share for example)
Those functions work fine, except for shares that are configured with the -nobrowse flag.
for those, i get hresult 87 - "the parameter is incorrect".
If i reconfigure the same share as browsable, the functions work ok.
It's important to indicate that i call both API's with the full path of the share , the one that allows access to it.
(I'm using OnTap API for getting the nobrowse Shares ( 'cifs-share-list-iter-start' and 'cifs-share-list-iter-next')).
Are you aware of any solution for this problem?
Is there a known limitation on the server side? should i pass the parameter differently? is there a workaround?
Thank you for your help.
