Multiple size limitations are defined in the application.
Here is the list :
|Maximum length for a file name (*)||255 characters|
|Maximum combined length of both the file name and path name (*)||4096 characters (**)|
|Size of Primary Storage Name||56 characters|
|Size of DNS Name in Primary Storage||256 characters|
|Size of Options in Primary Storage||256 characters|
|Size of User in Primary Storage||56 characters|
|Size of Password in Primary Storage||56 characters|
|Size of Tape Library Name||250 characters|
|Size of Tape Pool Name||255 characters|
|Size of Barcode||8 characters|
|Size of Task Name||255 characters|
|Size of MetaData Name||256 characters|
|Size of MetaData Value||256 characters|
|Size of MetaData Custom_Field Name||256 characters|
|Size of MetaData Custom_Field Value||
(*) If a special character is detected (non UTF-8), the name will be encoded with %MNGA182 then HEX of the source name and this will reduce the the size of the name (the special character will take 4 characters space).
(**) This length matches the PATH_MAX that is supported by the operating system. The Unicode representation of a character can occupy several bytes, so the maximum number of characters that comprises a path and file name can vary. The actual limitations are :
- the number of bytes in the path and file components, which might correspond to an equal number of characters.
- which is superseded by maximum of 21845 characters
