We are running samba 2.0.0 on solaris 2.6.
We have security = domain and server = localNTbox.
When nmbd starts up it registers itself with the localNTbox, which is a WINS
After a period of time other WINS servers in our network synchronize and all
on the network can access the samba server.
After 24 days the WINS server tombstones the samba server entry - presumably
has not re-registered. After synchronization all the WINS servers have the
tombstoned!! Now no machines can access (via WINS) the samba server.
I can still connect using smbclient and nmblookup works.
To get the WINS servers to "see" the samba server again I have to stop and
Is there anyway that nmbd can re-register itself with the WINS server, or is
wrong with my configuration?
