In MS-ADTS Ambiguous Name Resolution is described.

In this, the syntax and behaviour for 'anr=andrew' is defined, and
Samba4 implements this.  However, we also have seen behaviour for 'anr==andrew'.  However, I can't find this in the docs.

A URL describing some of this behaviour (Specific Match) is:


We thought we had this implemented, but when we fixed other bugs, our implementation would no longer pass our self-tests, and it has been abandoned pending clarification.

Can you provide me some more details on this behaviour?
