Subject: Handling of STATUS_BUFFER_OVERFLOW on SMB_COM_READ_ANDX
I need some help regarding the interaction of STATUS_BUFFER_OVERFLOW and chained SMB requests.
For SMB_COM_READ_ANDX requests on named pipes it can happen that the server has to return STATUS_BUFFER_OVERFLOW (see MS-CIFS 18.104.22.168 Receiving an SMB_COM_READ_ANDX Request).
Are chained requests possible in this case?
As there's only one status field for all requests in the chain, it's not clear how a server should handle such a situation.
