Netbios alias -max names or chars

The variable that holds this info is Globals.szNetBiosAliases;
Globals is a type struct,
and szNetbiosAliases is char *szNetbiosAliases
so theoretically, it has no fixed size limit; I didn't see any arbitrary
limit as to the number of aliases the method used to read in this parameter
being set either.
But there are other considerations in terms of performance and network
as each one of the aliases is going to be broadcast/registered with wins
at startup, and periodically after that...
You might want to share more of what you are doing and why; someone on the
have a 'better' way of implementing your solution.
Hope this helps,

Subject: Netbios alias -max names or chars
Can someone tell me the maximum amount of names or characters that can be
put on the "netbios aliases" line in the smb.conf. We have situation where
we potentially need to put up to 200 names on the line (big machines, one
name per application).
P.S. Apologies for the large disclaimer.
