Problems with JCIFs library, no one seems to know about it.

Is it possible to use JCIFS to return all users from a Domain as well as all groups from that domain?

I have been studying the source code for jcifs 1.3.0 and found a class SID.java. Inside, there are few interesting methods such as getGroupMemberSids.

I have been playing with the code but I did not make much progress. Any comments, suggestions, howtos, pointers, etc are greatly appreciated. Thanks.
try {
    UniAddress myDomain = getPrimaryDomain(ip);
    NTLMAuth = new NtlmPasswordAuthentication(domainName,userName,password);
    SmbSession.logon(myDomain, NTLMAuth);
    // after loging in, here's how to get the SID for the Domain
    jcifs.smb.SID mySid = jcifs.smb.SID.getServerSid(hostName, NTLMAuth);
  // this returns something like 
  // Sid Domain SID: S-1-5-21-796745780-2711697408-451074171
  // trying to resolve SIDs this way DOES NOT work
  SID[] sids = new SID[10];
    sids[0] = mySid; // assigns domain SID???
    
    jcifs.smb.SID.resolveSids(hostName, NTLMAuth, sids);
    
    for (int i = 0; i < sids.length; i++ ) {
            System.out.println("Sids["+i+"] Type: " +sids[i].getType());
    }
 
    // Second attempt, fails as well
 
    String sidDomainId = ""+mySid.getDomainSid();
 
    SID domsid = new SID(sidDomainId);
    int rid = 1120;
    int count = 150;
    
    SID[] sids = new SID[count];
    for (int i = 0; i < sids.length; i++) { 
            sids[i] = new SID(domsid, rid++);
    }
    SID.resolveSids("ts0", null, sids);
    for (int i = 0; i < sids.length; i++) {
            System.out.println("My SIDs "+sids[i].toString());
    }
 
  
  } catch (SmbException smbe) {
          System.out.println("Failed to Authenticate: "+smbe.getMessage()+" NTStatus: "+smbe.getNtStatus());
  } catch (Exception e) {
          System.out.println("Failed to Authenticate: "+e.getMessage());
  }

Have you tried joining the JCIFS mailing list and asking this question there?

https://lists.samba.org/listinfo/jcifs

Apparently no one here know much about it.

I've worked with it in the past, but only for user authentication, so my knowledge is close to zero.
