I'm trying to figure how chars can be in workgroup name?


Code:
comp1:/etc/samba # smbclient -L comp2.localnet.webwaredev.net
Enter lhorace's password:
Domain=[LOCALNETWEBWAREDEV] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.4.2-1.1.3.1-2229-SUSE-SL11.2]

        Sharename       Type      Comment
        ---------       ----      -------
        shares          Disk      Server Shares
        IPC$            IPC       IPC Service (Samba 3.4.2-1.1.3.1-2229-SUSE-SL11.2)
Domain=[LOCALNETWEBWAREDEV] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.4.2-1.1.3.1-2229-SUSE-SL11.2]

        Server               Comment
        ---------            -------

        Workgroup            Master
        ---------            -------
        LOCALNETWEBWARE
I want the Workgroup to be localnetwebwaredev but as you can see the Workgroup is localnetwebwaredev instead. Is there a length limit? Is limited to 15? Thanks for answering my question?

I found this information: NetBIOS names are limited with 15 characters (16th character determine a
host functionality). What does (16th character determine a host functionality) means?
