No. But I think this is clearly an important feature so it will need to
happen. Considering your previous message and other observations
surrounding the ssnLimit property in recent days, a suitable solution
might be to create new transports to a different domain controller when
the ssnLimit is reached. That would address both issues. I will look at it
as soon as I get a chance.


A program should be written to  model the concepts of the task it
performs rather than the physical world or a process because this
maximizes the  potential for it  to be applied  to tasks that are
conceptually similar and, more  important, to tasks that have not
yet been conceived.
