Do you mean add them to lmhosts?

Ok, this may be will work, but:
1. Clients sometimes changes their name (and workgroup)
2. What I should do with LMB, DMB? - it is changed VERY often,
because clients are often do poweroff, reset. - and Samba cannot be LMB for
all of workgroups.

So I need every 5 minutes correct my lmhosts file.
May be it can do with some tool?
Do you know any?
