We are using Samba 2.2.5 as a WINS server within my department, which is
spread accross several subnets. This works most of the time, however if for
some reason the samba server is down for an extended period, then the master
browsers on the subnets other than it's subnet lose contact with it and have
to be re-booted, to re-gain contact and therefore for all machines to be
visible to each other.
Is it possible to have another machine that would be a backup WINS server,
also running samba so that network browsing would continue to work as long
as one of the machines was up ?
