[Samba] Changing the name of a server?

I have a server called "images" (both TCP/IP and NetBIOS) I am
replacing with a new server. The new server's development name (both
TCP/IP and NetBIOS) is "rackimages". Both are members of an NT4
Domain. Images is an NT4 Server, rackimages is a RH8 Linux box
running Samba 2.2.7.
I want rackimages to become images. I have it all set and ready to
go. My shares work and users are authenticated properly. So here's
what I did:
- I created a new Domain account for the old images server called
"oldimages". I changed its name and rebooted it.
- I modified rackimage's smb.conf to reflect the new netbios name
"images". I stopped and restarted smbd/nmbd.
- I changed entries in our DNS server such that the name "images"
points to the new server and not the old one.
Now, when I type \\images on a command line I am asked to
authenticate!!!? Images is set to domain authenticate. I switched
everything back the way it was before and now it all works again.
But I want rackimages to be images.
What am I missing?
