Description shufeng yang 2004-08-18 20:05:48 UTC
when a host A share a directory whose name more than 13 chars,
In host B, user the command "smbclient -L A", it can only display the first 13
chars of the share name in host A

As a workaround, you can display all the share names by using the Samba "net rpc
share" command.  See:

Comment 2 Matt Seitz 2004-11-18 14:58:41 UTC
Actually, "net rpc share" is only a partial workaround.  It will list the longer
share names, but it will truncate the names at 12 characters.

the current behavior is not an issue in smbclient, but in smbd
where it will not enumerate shares >= 13 characters in length 
via the NetShareEnum rap call.  This is actually correct behavior.
