A NON-critical documentation-and-policy question
Currently, we sem to default
mangled names = Yes
(unless it just changed). This startled
me, as I thought we were being NT-like.
However, when i brought up smbfs on a linux
test machine, all the names were in 8.3 format.
I checked the 2.0.8 I was running and the 2.3-pre?
I had been testing, and testparm claimed in both
cases that the dedault was mangled names = Yes
I changed it, of course, in my smb.conf, but
it wasn't what I'd expected!
Did I miss something?
