The How-To writes : "nmbd can be configured as a WINS server, but it is
not necessary to specifically use Samba as your WINS server. MS Windows
NT4, Server or Advanced Server 200x can be configured as your WINS
server. In a mixed NT/200x server and Samba environment on a Wide Area
Network, it is recommended that you use the Microsoft WINS server
capabilities. In a Samba-only environment, it is recommended that you
use one and only one Samba server as the WINS server." in chapter 10.
We found that each of our subnets has to have at least one Samba client
pointing to the same Samba WINS server, if we have to make enterprise
WINS(running on Samba 3.0.0) working, in a mixed environment as
described above, even though all the Win9x,Winnt, Win2k, & XP clients
point to the same Samba WINS server.
Has anyone had the similar experience? Or, any work-around instead of
using MS WINS server(s)?
