1.5 Prerequisites/Preconditions

An original equipment manufacturer (OEM) code page has to be configured in the server implementation. This requirement enables the server to accept data that is encoded in an OEM code page, as well as to return select results that are encoded in an OEM code page.

The client implementation must know the network address of the server. The network address must satisfy the requirements of a network address for the underlying transport of RPC. When using RPC over SMB, for example, the network address must be a network address that is compatible with the Server Message Block (SMB) Protocol ([MS-SMB] or [MS-SMB2]), such as a NETBIOS name.
