User-Agent: Mozilla/4.75 [de]C-CCK-MCD DT (WinNT; U)
Description of problem:
A user browsing a samba share from within windows-explorer tries
to get ownership of a file on the samba share.
The user just gets a popup with 0xc002002e and no further explainations.
Also we know the function the user tries is not implemented it would

1. in the MS-Explorer right click on as file on the samba share
2. try to get ownership of the file
Expected Results: A text message should come up
maybe (Not Supported)

on one of the sama-lists, to see what the developers think of it.
It is up to the client to make somthing useful out of the error number and there
is nothing the Samba server can do in this case. This does not rule out changes
in Samba however, as its often possible to return a different error code which
will actually be mapped to an error string by the client.
In this case I suspect the functionality simply was not implemented in the
version of Samba you are using (you failed to mention which one in the report,
and I don't know what RH71 shipped with). More recent versions of samba have
the 'Take ownership' RPC implemented, but only for root (due to the way unix
