Very often we have problem with our samba-server. All the users are unable
to logon to it. The error message is "No domain server is available...." If
we runs nmblookup -S "sambaservername" at the samba-server when we have
this problem we receives the message:

If we kills and starts the nmbd process everything is OK for a while and
the nmblookup returns the server's ip-adress and the netbios and

The samba versin is 1.9.17p1, the machine is a HP D350 running HP-UX 10.20.
The important part of the smb.conf file looks like this:
  domain master = yes
  local master = yes
  preferred master = yes
  domain logons = yes
  logon script = logon.bat
  os level = 255
  security = user

Can anyone help me with this problem.
