You need to change the "wins server =" to give it the new WINS server
address. You need to change the "workgroup =" line to set the new domain
Then restart samba. There is NO need to reboot the DEC OSF server itself.

None. Suggest you update Samba to a more recent version is you have Win2K
or WinXP clients.
