I have a network with about 4k workstations. I have a few dozen servers (win
2k, nt4, so on) and a bunch of PDC and DBCs. In this network I have only one
wins server that used to run on a windows 2k server. I was having a lot of
problems with this server and decided to use samba as wins server only.
so I installed samba on a linux box and started only nmb server. since that
two things is happening frequently:
1. my servers record are desapearing from wins database. this servers are
never turned off, and once or twice a week this records just vanish and I
have to restart the server to register itself again.
2. when I install a new workstation I do so in a subnet A where is my support
team. Then I send the workstation to it's final place which is a subnet B.
while installing it, the workstation register itself on wins server with an
IP from subnet A. When I send it to its final location it gets an IP from
subnet B but wins server keeps the record from subnet A. It does not update
the record. If I stop the server, edit wins.dat and remove the record,
restart wins e renew the workstation dhcp net configuration it register
itself again with the correct IP.
I am using Suse 9.2 professional with samba
smbd version 3.0.9-2.3-SUSE.
I am not starting smbd.
Thanks for any help.
