Hello list

 I am having the following problem with samba wins server:

1. my servers record are desapearing from wins database. this 
servers(computers) are never turned off, and once or twice a week the wins  
records just vanish and I have to restart the server to register itself again 
with wins.

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.
