Really Wacky Problem!

Thanks for the response.
I have no netbios name set specifically in smb.conf, there is a DNS
entry for zeus called "zeus". Other systems Sol 2.5 and Sol 2.6 work
fine with a older samba, using no "netbios name". I just copied the
the global part of the smb.conf, onto zeus it looks like this:
workgroup = OBJECTSWITCH
password server = jupiter
local master = no
os level = 65
browse list = yes
guest account = softwire
security = server
printing = sysv
socket options = TCP_NODELAY
load printers = no
mangle case = yes
password level = 8
create mode = 0775
log file = /opt/samba/var/log
log level = 6
wins server = 10.170.254.2
I've really racked my head with this one! I appreciate the reply.
