I just ran into another problem, which could be the cause of the issue 
abouve, I didn't realize that after migrating from to, the dns entries would be out of date. In the mean time, I 
can't seem to find a reliable way to update the DNS entry with a new 
IP?. In the mean time, I will be fool around with 'samba-tool dns..'
