The SNA Server client for Microsoft Windows NT fails to find SNA Servers through the OtherServers Registry parameter if the server names that are listed in the entry have been configured to use a Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN).
The SNA Server client for Windows NT truncates the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) of the servers that are listed in the OtherServers registry parameter so that only the first 15 characters are used.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for SNA Server 4.0. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
