I'm attempting to use nmblookup from within a script to find which NT
user is logged into a certain machine. The script will have the IP
address of the machine in question, so the command I've tried is:-

$ nmblookup -A
Looking up status of

This returns nothing else. Similarly, the -S option fails:-

$ nmblookup -S arcturus
querying arcturus on arcturus<00>
Looking up status of

AFAIK, both these used to work (but haven't for some time - I've asked
related questions on the main Samba list), and I've no idea why. Is this
a bug, or am I just being stupid? Clients in question are NTSP6.
