SPX (platforms other than Windows XP/200x).
According to the Novell standard for legal SAP names, the following characters are not allowed:
\ / : ; , * ? + -
If you start a server named demo-1, the default behavior is to strip out the hyphen (-) and try to start a server demo1. By turning on ExtendedName, the name is left untouched.
This is an SPX port parameter and is only useful when starting a server.
Users should be wary of using this option as it is contrary to the SAP standard.
The following command starts a NetWare server with the name demo-1.
load dbsrv10.nlm -x spx(ExtendedName=YES) demo-1
