On the other hand, I believe HP's CIFS-for-VMS product isn't available
for VAXen, or on VMS versions earlier than 7.3-2 .... so if you've got
one of those platforms (more common than you might think) then you have
to stick with JYC Samba.
Someone please let me know if I'm wrong :)

yes there are lots of benefits migrating from 2.2.8 to the latest
CIFS on VMS.
It is been qualified on the latest hardware of Itanium and Alpha, with
latest OSes. There is support for VMS specific file formats viz.
Length formats, StreamLF and supports ODS2 disks also. It is been
on the clusters also. So you will get the benefit of the clusters.
Please note that you need to have the latest CRTL patches. before you
migrate and as a suggestion please test the software on your test
and convince yourself before migrating to the production.
