A question. What is a maximum smbd service name length?
I checked smbd.conf documentation and the only thing I have found
is a statement that smbd has no such limitation.
A thing that puzzles me is that the maximum service name that
I can use is of 12 characters length. I can see the services/shares
with longer names in the Windows Explorer but can't mount and/or
access them. An error message looks something like:
\\server\1234567890123456 is not accessible.
The network name cannot be found.
I'm running smbd on an Solaris 2.6 machine, and using NT 4.0 SP3
as a client.
