Well, I don't think there'a any such thing as an "NT Guru", but let me see
what I can answer.

That's kinda cool...  I'm going to have to try that out.

The "native" name is "netlogon".

It should do that as part of the browser services on NT.  Try restarting the
"computer browser" service, assuming that it doesn't have any dependancies
(sorry, I can't remember any, but who knows).  I'd think that either this
service, or the "server" service would be in charge of these.  However, if
you restart the server service, you're going to cut everybody off, which
doesn't sound high on your list of things to do today.  Other than that, I
don't see any possibilities except rebooting the server.

Ah, just reboot and cut everybody.  They're only NT users, who cares?  :-)
