Hi list,

thanks for the answer.

I've read on internet about this problem, The lenght cant be increased. 
Could be other way to fix this problem?.

Its something weird. I always thought that netbios name was the name of 
the machine no the chain used for login.

NetbiosName: Machine01
UserName: pepito
UserDomainName: Domain\\pepito.

I think Im far away from the solution. I hope you could point me to the 
right way.

Thanks for all.
