[Samba] After reIP, Samba hosts not browsable.

Hey folks,

	We recently reIP'ed our main office LAN.  Ever since
this was done, none of our Samba hosts are browsable via
Network Neighborhood.  While they are still availible via
Start -> Run -> \\servername, it's an annoying inconvenience.


	* PDC and BDC are NT domain controllers
	* Samba hosts are running several versions of Samba,
	  from the later 2.0.* releases, through 2.2.1 and
	* Samba hosts include Linux, IRIX, HP-UX, and Solaris

	To me, this points at a WINS problem, but deleting the
machine account from the domain and adding a new one does no
good.  Unfortunately, since WINS is such a black art (at least
to me), the NT admins can't figure out where the problem lies,

	I doubt if this is a problem with Samba itself, but I'm
hoping that since we're all here because we're integrating *NIX
with Windows networks, someone might have run into this problem

Any help would be much appreciated!  If you need further info,
I'll be happy to provide it.



Always carry a short length of fibre-optic cable. If
you get lost, then you can drop it on the ground, wait
ten minutes, and ask the backhoe operator how to get
back to civilization.                     -Alan Frame
