I can't answer that -- but I do have some bad experiences with a snap
server which is why it is being sold off and we're using a REAL
fileserver (we're using a 4000 series).

- Microsoft authentication is old & insecure.  Not even NTLMv2.

- no support of group ID bits, sticky bits.

- messes up file permissions all them time.

These things aren't ready for prime time. Maybe now that adaptec bought
them they'll get better, but not for a year or more.
