ADForestScope   REG_SZ?
Another words is the limit 256 characters on a WIN2K3  32 bit server?
1 Solution
The following table lists the data types that are currently defined and that are used by Windows. The maximum size of a value name is as follows:

    * Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, and Windows Vista: 16,383 characters
    * Windows 2000: 260 ANSI characters or 16,383 Unicode characters
    * Windows Millennium Edition/Windows 98/Windows 95: 255 characters

Long values (more than 2,048 bytes) must be stored as files with the file names stored in the registry. This helps the registry perform efficiently. The maximum size of a value is as follows:

    * Windows NT 4.0/Windows 2000/Windows XP/Windows Server 2003/Windows Vista: Available memory
    * Windows Millennium Edition/Windows 98/Windows 95: 16,300 bytes

Note There is a 64K limit for the total size of all values of a key.
