WINS on a Samba Server - Backup of the WINS database.

OK so Samba WINS does not support MS-WINS replication.


<turn on novice mode>
This may be a really simple one but how do you backup
the WINS database on a 'RUNNING' Samba Server in case of failure ?
</novice mode off>

In MS's NT you'd be able to set up replication partners etc... a failed
WINS server would soon regenerate a list of NetBIOS to IP's from
announcements but is there an alternative mode of operation possible ?

I've been through the BROWSING* docs and most others but
can't find anything obvious.
