R: [Samba] Username length

I had the same problem, I also needed :

1) the username should begin with a number
2) the group name should be longer than 16 characters.

So I modified the standard "useradd" e "groupadd" (rpm shadow-util ) to
fullfil these requirements.  

I hope this can help.

Oggetto: [Samba] Username length

Is the maximum username length of 8 characters an absolute, or is there a
way around it? I'm migrating an NT-based file server to Samba, and I'd like
to keep my existing username list if at all possible, but many of the login
names exceed 8 characters.

Thank you,
