5.1B-2 kit provides enhancements and corrections for

ASU Version 5.1B-2 kit:
- ASU server can now be a Backup Domain
Controller to a Windows 2003 mixed mode domain.
- The ASU server now supports the non-default
cluster alias. At any point of time the ASU
server supports only one cluster alias, which
can be either the default alias or a non-default
- FileChangeNotify registry parameter has
been added to enable the ASU server to notify
clients of a file change from other clients.
- The StoreAttributesAsMetadata registry

0 (do not store DOS attributes and file creation
time in AdvFS metadata).

rmattr are added to manage DOS attributes.
- The StoreFileAcl registry parameter has
been added to specify whether or not to store
explicit ACLs for files.

to check and enumerate ASU printer entries,
which includes the ASU printer share entries,
printer printcap entries, printer registry
entries, and printer spool directory entries.
- A new client tool called pccheck is
available to collect and display the diagnostic
information like user, share, network
