I am attempting to query an option on a vFiler using the NetApp SDK 5.0. I can use the "options-get" API to access other options but it will constantly fail with the "cifs.enable_share_browsing" option with the error "Option is not visible: cifs.enable_share_browsing". Our end goal is to get vFiler snapdiffs working with our backup software. I am hoping somebody out there has either experienced this problem or knows exactly why we are getting this error. But, any thoughts or feedback would be appreciated. I am adding some sample output below.
* this example shows the command failing against the vfiler
Thanks very much for testing on your end. I really appreciate that. I can confirm that the same behavior occurs in ONTAP 8.1 (I should have included that in my original post). Our ultimate goal here is to get this query working to facilitate functionality for our backup software (TSM). It's good to know the tunneling route would work but I think we've hit a wall here with the backup software. I'll go ahead and follow up with a bug report. Again, thank you for the effort and feedback.
I've run into this problem twice now. The first time was back in September 2012, and again today.
I don't know what fixed it last time, but this time, disabling SMB2.1 and restarting the CIFS server on the NetApp resolved the problem. At least, those are the two things done today. One or the other might have been the real fix.
