I was getting ready to test because I think it is 128 but someone has already tested.  My friend Santhosh did here

You can make it longer if you go into adsiedit.

Man I can imagine those titles :)

Thanks

Mike

i'm on windows 2003 server.
I was able to enter 86 characters title via ADSIEdit but can not save.

A value for the attribute was not in the acceptable range of values.

my bad did not make it clear that this is for windows 2003.

According to MS, the rangeUpper for title for windows 2003 is 64.
