We are having an issue where one of our applcations is not playing well with mounts from a NetApp filer. The vendor says that there is an issue with the implementation of CIFS in SLES > 10.3 and that we should go back to 10.3 (not an option), try NFS (but we lose all of the Windows ACLs), or go to a different OS, such as RedHat.

I'd like to verify - has anyone heard of any issues with the CIFS implementation as it pertains to mounted shares from a NetApp filer?

thanks all in advance.
