If a name that is longer than the column width for the IP Address field is added to a TN5250 AS/400 definition, the name is not redrawn correctly if the column width is subsequently resized. The overflow part of the name is truncated and appears in the Subnet Mask column. The overflow part of the name stays in the Subnet Mask even the if column is resized.
The TN5250 portion of SNA Manager fails to redraw the column correctly to an Add Name entry. Instead of not showing any overflow in the Subnet Mask column, the extra characters stay on screen.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SNA Server versions 3.0 and 3.0.Service Pack 1 (SP1). This problem was corrected in the latest SNA Server version 3.0 U.S. Service Pack. For information on obtaining this Service Pack, query on the following word in the Microsoft Knowledge Base (without the spaces):

With the fix applied, SNA Manager redraws the columns correctly. Any overflow from the long name is not displayed in the Subnet Mask column.
