Hi Cihad,

I am usually not fond of solutions where all connections of a given type are affected by a single environment change.  In this case, there is no good way to make the change connection-specific.

I would insist, though, that any change to the functioning of the system be backwards-compatible.  That means that even if there are no changes to start-options.env, the default behavior is still as it was.  I can think of a way to do that: basically, in the static block, you should check to see if the property is already set before setting it (if it isn't).

Hi Karl, 

In some cases, "jcifs" is running slowly. In order to solve this problem, we need to set custom some properties. 

For example; my problem was in my test environment: I have a windows server and an ubuntu server in same network in AWS EC2 Service. The windows server has Active Directory service, DNS Server and shared folder while the ubuntu server has some instance such as manifoldcf, an db instance and solr. 

If the DNS settings are not defined on the ubuntu server, jcifs runs slowly. Because the default resolver order is set as 'LMHOSTS,DNS,WINS'. It means[1]; firstly "jcifs" checks '/etc/hosts' files for linux/unix server'', then it checks the DNS server. In my opinion, the linux server doesn't recognize the DNS server and threads are waiting for every file for access to read.

I suppose, WINS is used when accessing hosts on different subnets. So, I have set "jcifs.resolveOrder = WINS" and my problem has been FIXED. 

I suppose, WINS is used when accessing hosts on different subnets.

Another suggestion for similar problem from another example[2]: "-Djcifs.resolveOrder = DNS"

Finally; I suggest these changes: 

Remove the line (System.setProperty("jcifs.resolveOrder","LMHOSTS,DNS,WINS"); )  from SharedDriveConnector.java 

Add "-Djcifs.resolveOrder = LMHOSTS,DNS,WINS" to "start-options.env" file.

If you have been convinced about this, I can create a PR.

These settings were provided by the developer of jcifs, Michael Allen.  You have to really understand the protocol well before you should consider changing them in any way.

SharedDriveConnector have some hardcoded system properties as follow:
How can I override them when to start manifoldcf? 
It may be better to define these settings in the start-options.env file.
