I had samba set up and working with with winbindd and using a domain called
INS.  I was then asked to move the server instead into a different domain
called ITCDCOM.  I modified the smb.conf to point to the wins and password
server for ITCDCOM and then attempted to do a net join into ITCDCOM.  It
Unable to find a suitable server
There is no ads involved or kerberos.  The version is:
Samba version CVS 3.0.1pre1.  I see in the debug info:
2003/10/30 12:46:43, 5] libsmb/nmblib.c:send_udp(744)
  Sending a packet of len 50 to ( on port 137

  name_status_find: name not found
Unable to find a suitable server
[2003/10/30 12:46:48, 2] utils/net.c:main(758)
I added in lmhosts an entry for ITCDCOM.  Is the fact that it was perviously
in INS domain somehow messing up the joining into the new domain?  Do I need
to delete some file (secret file) or something?  Do I need to unjoin INS?
How do I do that?
