Hi. i'm using Java 7 API Files.getowner to retrieve the owner of a file. but in my case, the file is in the Samba map drive. the file is actually on the remote HP-UX system, which is accessed in windows from the map-drive. when i use the Files.getowner for a file under the C:, it returns the owner of that file. but when i do the same for a file under the map-drive, it returns a sequence of digits, like S-1-5-21-1256266458-1619763451-1018739985-1218.
can anyone tell me how can i obtain the owner of the file and not the sequence of digits?
pls help ASAP.
