Hi Andrew:
I tried to dig this up but the scope of your question is currently just too broad. It would help greatly if you can give a little more information about the scenario in which you saw this enum. Is there any additional information that you or another member of Samba can recall that will help reduce the breadth of the scope? Even a timeframe that the scenario was experienced may prove to be useful.

Because of the long history of Samba - without suitable documentation for the most part, sometimes myths and legends build up.  That said, I'm unable to produce this value on the wire for LSA lookup names.

What we are asking is for is some research and clarification (if possible).  We can't ask you how we got this in the first place, but we were hoping you might be able to do some digging, to check the IDL and see if this value ever occours in this enum in windows (ie, is this a cut-down enum), or if there is another similar (but not identical) enum that we might have got confused with.
