Subject: Errors in [MS-CIFS] relating to Process Exit.
The first paragraph reads:
This is an original Core Protocol command. This command is obsolescent.
It was declared obsolete in the LAN Manager 1.0 dialect (see [SMB-LM1X])
but continues to be included in later documentation. [MS-CIFS] lists this
command as obsolescent, and that designation is retained here.
In the above paragraph, the recursive reference to [MS-CIFS] is incorrect.
It should say [CIFS], which is the Leach/Naik IETF draft. That is the document that declared SMB_COM_PROCESS_EXIT to be obsolescent. (It is listed in section 5, under "Obsolescent SMB Requests".)
In my original submission, the reference is correctly given as [CIFS], not [MS-CIFS], so it has been changed. Please check for similar changes as they are likely to be errors as well. The [CIFS] document is and was an important informational reference.
Also, please see:
The table at the bottom has a column for POSIX Equivalent, but Tom Talpey let me know that the POSIX Equivalent error codes were removed from the document, so there should be no such column there.
