Hello friends, how are you?

I have a PDC running fine, but for security reasons my network administrator want to disable the netbios over tcp/ip.

My samba is a wins server and my hosts are setup for this wins server by dhcp.

A simple solution is just to disabled the nmbd service, but my clients were unable to logon correctly via PDC.

Is the nmbd service necessary for PDC remote logon?

Also, doing a pdbedit -Lv I saw my machines are connected by the netbios name instead of ip or fqdn. So, if I disable the nmbd service and rename all entries for ip or fqdn machine name, it will work?
