Protect files in Netapp CIF share

This issue has been solved. See solution.
Question, is there a way to restrict access to files in a remote location (Netapp CIF share)? Mainly what I want to do is to protect files/folders in a CIF share from Netapp, so I can define which users can access determined files/folders.
As you can't install the agent in Netapp by itself, prevention policies stating files rules -- writable, read-only or no-access -- cannot be deployed as you would do it with a Windows file server. There is a process set, remote_file_ps, which you can use, however it's very limited, it allows you to give full/safe privileges, readonly access or block all access to files if accessed with remote programs, this process set doesn't allow granular settings.
