UNC less than 32 characters

In the OES documentation I find the following: NOTE:You should keep the UNC
path and printer name to less than 32 characters.

Is this a limit on the real UNC or is it really about the display name?

In other words, does using a ShortInstallName have any bearing on the limit?

Thanks!

It's the display name.

The shortinstallname option has specifically been created to help dealing
with the 32 character limit (beside the fact that it makes the pritner
names much more readable).

Re: UNC less than 32 characters

Fantastic. We do have a small number of 98 systems left (maybe 100). The
fact that the short names don't work with 98 should help by adding more fuel
to the fire so we can get rid of them 🙂

It wouldn't be an issue but our RFC compliant domain name is 20 characters
all by itself. Add a server name and the slashes in the UNC and there is no
room left for the printer name. (Consider server name of 8 chars and a
period, 20 char domain and 3 slashes).

Thanks for the help!
