Description Jp Robinson 2001-05-15 19:22:05 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98)

Description of problem:
The variable used to hold the "serial" portion of the domain is too small 
to hold the traditional "YYYYMMDDUU" (year, month, day, updates) stamp 
used by many orginizations. While I myself have no problem with this, as a 
support tech, I have recieved several complaints from people using 
bindconf in different companies where they are required to use this as a 
standard. Could this possibly be expanded in a future release?

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Try to put a YYYYMMDDUU serial in bindconf. 

Actual Results:  It refuses to take the new serial and keeps whatever the 
old value was.
