Try to add "static mappings" for these machines.
> I do not know whether this is a samba problem or an NT feature, but it
> seems only to occur with samba boxes, so it could be samba's fault:
> The NT PDC (moritz) runs also the WINS server. It regularly forgets the
> IP addresses of our samba servers:
> # nmblookup -U moritz -R hni-gate
> querying hni-gate on 126.96.36.199
> name_query failed to find name hni-gate
> I then just have to stop and start the nmbd on the samba server and
> everything is fine again.
> This happens about every two weeks or so. Has anybody experienced
> anything similar and has an idea about how to stop it?
