I took a look at wins.dat and the system information is in the file.  I
did a find for libnss_wins.so and was unable to locate it on my system.  I
did smbd –b and will paste the modules section below.

Builtin modules:
    pdb_ldap pdb_smbpasswd pdb_tdbsam rpc_lsa rpc_reg rpc_lsa_ds rpc_wks
ctl rpc_ntsvcs rpc_net rpc_netdfs rpc_srv rpc_spoolss rpc_eventlog
rpc_samr idma
p_ldap idmap_tdb auth_sam auth_unix auth_winbind auth_server auth_domain

any ideas?
