I have a Solaris samba 2.0.0 box (zirconium) trying to join a workgroup.
But, the samba WINS server (medusa) complains:

[1999/01/18 07:18:02, 1] nmbd/nmbd.c:main(672)
  Netbios nameserver version 2.0.0 started.

  Samba name server MEDUSA is now a local master browser for workgroup
CSI_MELB on subnet

[1999/01/18 07:55:43, 0]
  process_name_registration_request: unicast name registration request
received for name ZIRCONIUM<20> from IP on subn
et UNICAST_SUBNET. Error - should be sent to WINS server

Problem is, IS the WINS server specified on Zirconium:

   printing = bsd
   printcap name = /etc/printcap
   load printers = yes
   guest account = pcguest
   security = domain
   workgroup = CSI_MELB
   hosts equiv = /etc/hosts.equiv.samba
   local master = no
   password server = SCOTT
   encrypt passwords = yes
   wins server =
