hi list!

excuse my bad english :-)

after two days of search in the whole internet i cant find an anwser or help to
my question.

i've installed samba 3.0.1 (rpm build) on linux redhat 9.0. since i've done this
i've a strange behavor with my dos client. befor upgrading, under dos the long
directories appears as i want. e.g.:
windows --- yyyyzzzzx
dos --- YYYYZZ~1 or similar.

now with the new samba version i have the following:
windows --- yyyyzzzzx
dos --- YA0E3D~A or similar.

so my question is:

i'm to stupid to make an right configure in the smb.conf?
i've tried everything. such as charakter encodeing, mangeling, protocol.....
or is this an bug and i must upgrade to an newer samba version?

many thanks for all answers!!

greetings from mario - austria

This is NOT a bug.
Use the following option in your smb.conf:

mangling method = hash

Please change the Status of this bug report to ``INVALID''.
