Description Robin Hack 2015-08-21 12:33:41 UTC
I'm dealing with:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1216062

Bug adds sentence: Note that the maximum length for a NetBIOS name is 15 charactars.

It would be nice to see another sentence which inform administrator about automatic truncation.

Something like:
NetBIOS name will be automatically truncated when length exceed 15 characters.

Thanks and have nice day.

For record:
Ah.. sorry I didn't realized that bug is not available public.

Basically bug just mentioned extending man pages about sentence:
Note that the maximum length for a NetBIOS name is 15 charactars.

EOF :)
