Description John Malmberg 2004-10-10 18:53:38 UTC
This is entered mainly for tracking an OpenVMS specific issue.

OpenVMS has a concept of a displayed process name which has 15 printable
characters and must be unique to a system+UIC group.

The current 2.2.x VMS port is modifying reply_special.c to do this.

IIRC: Samba 2.0.6 on VMS used compile time macros to redirect the call to
reply_special.c to a VMS specific wrapper that set the process name before
calling reply_special.c

The current algorithm in use results in a name consisting of SMBD_%s_%x
truncated to 15 characters where %x is the remote machine name, and %x is the
least significant 4 hexadecimal digits of the process ID.

This will never be fixed in 3.0.7.
