I am new to SAMBA.  Originally, the WIN server and the SAMBA server 
were located in the same subnet.  After the migration of the Microsoft end 
users subnet to 10.32.12.x, the SAMBA server is no longer able to seem 
by the Windows clients in 10.32.12.x.  The following is the error indicated
at /usr/local/samba/var/log.nmbd.  I appreciate if anyone can guide me to 
resolve the problem.  Thanks!
