Well, that then misses the point of samba4wins. If you do
not need to run multiple wins servers simultaneously, I
would highly recommend to just use the Samba3 nmbd with
"wins support = yes", that setup is far simpler. At failover
time you could just transfer the wins.dat file to the other
host (by whatever means), and start nmbd there.
