So, a few updates, after a little more legwork:
First, samba 2.0.6 doesn't fix the problem. I didn't think that it would, as
(a) the change log didn't mention anything about it, and (b) the CVS system
didn't mention anything about it on the few spots that I intuited I may find
such a note if it WERE fixed.
Second, after trawling through the CVS and source, I think I may know where
the problem is; that being said, I can't write C to save my life, and can
barely READ C, so I could be totally off on this one.
It looks to me that, in nmbd/nmbd_browsesync.c, the function
find_domain_master_name_query_success is where the problem's at. The lines:
/* Now initiate the node status request. */
memset((char *)&nmbname, '\0',sizeof(nmbname));
nmbname.name = '*';
look to me to be where the NMB packet is built that is used to do the node
status query; it looks like the nmbname.scope should ALSO be set here.
Again, I can read C (and follow includes and structure definitions in C) about
as well as I can vocalize ancient Sanskrit, so I may be completely off on
this. (I just wanted to contribute what I could, since I sure can't FIX the
Thanks again in advance.
