We've had this problem for quite some time with Netware, and now with OES2 Linux.

I'm not sure what/where the problem is (may be a client problem).

Here's what happens:

People are able to WRITE (obviously the data made it onto the server somehow) a file/directory structure that's either:
a) too long
b) has "funky" characters in it

But you then cannot MOVE/COPY or RENAME said items because they're too long or has funky characters in it.


I mean if there's a limit of say, 256 characters for total path/file name length, then how on earth did the Novell Client and/or Windows XP even let it get written to the server, yet once there, you cannot do anything with it (short of actually using server-based tools to do that).
