I have got a samba server with multiple interfaces.
Some of them are virtual interfaces in the same network dynamically
assigned by a RedHat Cluster.
So "Server1" can have:
But virtual interfaces can change during runtime.
When a Microsoft Client broadcasts for "Server1"s ip-number. Server1
responds one of it's ip-numbers on the corresponding network interfaces.
Not necessarily the physical one.
I would like not to set "bind interfaces only = true", in order to have
the samba server still listen for connections on virtual interfaces,
especially when they are assigned during runtime of the samba server.
But I would like it not to advertise them.
Is there a way to make the server answer only it's physical ip-number,
when it receives a broadcast query?
