You can get most of the Lan Manager Server and Workstation parameters to appear in the registry automatically by using the NET CONFIG command.
WARNING: When you run NET CONFIG SERVER (or NET CONFIG SRV), server related parameters that are normally autoconfigured each time you boot (for example, maxworkitems)are permanently set in the registry to whatever values Windows NT is currently using. These parameters will continue to override the defaults until you change them in the registry. You cannot change the values by running Control Panel, choosing Server, and then choosing Configure. Consequently, if you add or remove memory, or change the server size setting (minimize/balance/maximize), you will not get the benefit of server autoconfiguration.
By default, the only parameters in the
section of the registry are the following:
Size 3 Lmannounce 0
Windows NT 3.51 and 4.0 have the following additional entries:
However, if you type the following at the command line
C:\>net config server /HIDDEN:NO
The command completed successfully.
you will see the following appear in the registry:
Size 3 Lmannounce 0 comment "" srvcomment "" users -1 disc 15 autodisconnect 15 hidden 1 announce 720 anndelta 3000 userpath "c:\" sessopens 2048 sessvcs 1 opensearch 2048 maxworkitems 128 maxrawbuflen 65535 sessusers 2048 sessconns 2048 maxpagedmemoryusage -1 maxnonpagedmemoryusage -1 enablesoftcompat 1 enableforcedlogoff 1 timesource 0
Windows NT 3.51 and 4.0 have the same above entries EXCEPT the "disc" and the "comment" are eliminated.
This situation also applies to the Lan Manager Workstation section of the registry. By default the
section of the registry is empty. However, if you type
net config work /CHARTIME:250
the following appears:
CharWait 3600 MaxCollectionCount 16 CollectionTime 250 KeepConn 600 MaxCmds 50 SessTimeout 45 SizCharBuf 512 MaxThreads 17 LockQuota 6144 LockIncrement 10 LockMaximum 500 PipeIncrement 10 PipeMaximum 500 CacheFileTimeout 10 DormantFileLimit 45 ReadAheadThroughput -1 MailslotBuffers 8 ServerAnnounceBuffers 20 NumIllegalDatagramEvents 5 IllegalDatagramResetTime 60 LogElectionPackets 0 UseOpportunisticLocking 1 UseUnlockBehind 1 UseCloseBehind 1 BufNamedPipes 1 UseLockReadUnlock 1 UtilizeNtCaching 1 UseRawRead 1 UseRawWrite 1 UseWriteRawData 1 UseEncryption 1 BufFilesDenyWrite 1 BufReadOnlyFiles 1 ForceCoreCreateMode 1 Use512ByteMaxTransfer 0
Windows NT 3.51 and 4.0 have the same above entries.
