First of all I have been very remis in updating the SGI freeware site
version of samba, I believe it is still at 1.9.18p10. I would suggest
you get a copy from the samba mirrors or from
These are versions 2.0.5a that I compiled and packaged.
What are the settings in your smb.conf concerning wins? Are you using
samba as the WINS server or are you pointing to an NT WINS server?
