Just out of curiosity, how are you mapping the either 8 or 16 bit NT job 
entry numbers that the client needs to track to the 32 bit entry numbers 
generated by OpenVMS?

I can not remember from the last time I looked at this issue if NT job 
numbers were 8 bit or 16 bits.

Also, if you are doing a fresh port, it may be better to start with the 
3.X version of SAMBA.
