I have inherited a Samba 2.2.8a server with 12 NetBIOS aliases along with a
normal NetBIOS name. This was thought to be a good method of partitioning
the shares and a way for logical referencing by a project. Admirable goals.
However, I am noticing that the WINS registration for some of these NetBIOS
aliases seems to get dropped at times. I have people using the alias saying
that their share cannot be accessed at times. When I check indeed this is
the case the NetBIOS alias does not respond at all.
Restarting the samba server seems to correct the problem. In fact, I am
having to resort to restarting the server twice a day to prevent this
Any ideas as to how to resolve this situation.
