Pretty much is not the same.  Can you please send the getVolInfo output
for the other drive, too?

I'm not a support customer and I don't have access to netapp drives
myself.  If some netapp customer is interested in having that fixed,
it would be most helpful if that customer would report the problem.
There's also the problem that a fix in newer netapps won't help users
of older ones, and in contrast to Samba we have no chance to find out
what netapp drive exactly we're talking to.
