When is it that this announcement takes place? A reference
to somewhere in the CIFS docs is a good enough answer. I can
look it up from there

What lead me to this question was playing around with
NT 5 Beta 1 Wks. Seems that Samba did not respond to a
NETLOGON request when the user is unknown. It also did
break-up the packet into parts correctly when the
domainsidsize == 0. Seems like NT set this to 0 and then
would still allocate 24 bytes in the packet.
Also was Samba sending truncated replies to the QUERYFORPDC
requests. Problem was that smbd would compare the mailslot
name to \MAILSLOT\NET\NTLOGON. If the name macthed it would
include the rest of the settings ( things like the UNICODE
strings, ntversion flag and LM tokens ).
This could all be old news. If so I plead ignorant. At this
point NT 5 is half baked anyway so this is probably all
irrelavent but none-the-less interesting.
