Migrating Samba from one server to another.
I configure a CentOS 5.4 server with samba3-3.4.7-42.el5 from SerNet.
At this point the server's IP address is 10.32.1.201. I migrate the
persistent tdb (and ldb!) files an older server, then turn off the old
server and reconfigure the new one to 10.32.1.200.
Now every 5 minutes or so, nmbd complains:
There is already a domain master browser at IP 10.32.1.201 for workgroup
WORKGROUP registered on subnet UNICAST_SUBNET
There isn't: 10.32.1.201 does not exist any more. Shouldn't 10.32.1.200
realise there's nothing there, force an election, and take the domain
master browser function for itself?
