Description Andreas Hasenack (mail address dead) 2005-11-30 04:47:56 UTC
I have setup the machine with:
wins server =
wins proxy = yes is a PDC, and is a BDC.

Querying directly works:
[] # nmblookup -R -U domain#1c
querying domain on domain<1c> domain<1c>

Querying the local subnet ( doesn't work very well:
[] # nmblookup domain#1c
querying domain on domain<1c>

It only returns the PDC server and ignores the BDC. If I repeat it:
[] # nmblookup domain#1c
querying domain on
name_query failed to find name domain#1c

So, the "wins proxy = yes" machine ( just new the answer once. And, when it remembers (only the first run), it doesn't know about the BDC.
