[Samba] interference of the nmbd service with the dhcp of the debian server??

Hello guys,

I have a fileserver configured on a debian 9.9 using Louis APT. This is not
always the case, but sometimes the server changes IP, and the configuration
in /etc/network/interfaces is static. I already disabled services that
could potentially change the IP.

- The server is an xenserver VM;
- The "vlan" that the server is part of does not have DHCP enabled;
- In xenserver already changed the MAC a few times, because it could, I
don't know, have a static DHCP configured;

The IP configured as static is: (example ip)
The last IP that the server got automatically was: (example ip)

I searched for logs with IP and returned:

root at fileserver:/var/log/samba# grep -Rin "" .
./machines/nmbd.log:71:   dump workgroup on subnet
./machines/nmbd.log:85:   dump workgroup on subnet

Any idea? 🤔
