Hi list,
I am configuring a samba server as a PDC (called DSERVER). I have follow 
some good docs to build my smb.conf file (see below).
However, my server does not works correctly: when I execute smbclient, I 
don't find my workgroup (SOCINFO) alghouth I activated the wins support.
[adel at grid007 ~]$ smbclient -L localhost -U root
Domain=[DSERVER] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.0.26a-0.fc7]
