HP-UX CIFS/Samba Server Survey

Attached is a short (2 page) survey about usage of CIFS and/or Samba on HP-UX. This data helps HP plan for support and enhancements of new features, and future directions of serving the CIFS (SMB) protocol. Please fill out the survey and email it to eric.roseme@hp.com, or FAX it to (916) 748-7389). The survey is in ASCII format so should be readable by all. Feel free to pontificate at will via email.

All coherent replies will be rewarded with bunnies.

Thanks,

Eric
