Description Andreas Hasenack 2005-11-30 04:47:56 UTC
I have setup the 10.0.2.177 machine with:
wins server = 192.168.1.10
wins proxy = yes

192.168.1.10 is a PDC, and 192.168.2.10 is a BDC.

Querying 192.168.1.10 directly works:
[10.0.2.177] # nmblookup -R -U 192.168.1.10 domain#1c
querying domain on 192.168.1.10
192.168.1.10 domain<1c>
192.168.2.10 domain<1c>

Querying the local subnet (10.0.7.255) doesn't work very well:
[10.0.2.177] # nmblookup domain#1c
querying domain on 10.0.7.255
192.168.1.10 domain<1c>

It only returns the PDC server and ignores the BDC. If I repeat it:
[10.0.2.177] # nmblookup domain#1c
querying domain on 10.0.7.255
name_query failed to find name domain#1c

So, the "wins proxy = yes" machine (10.0.2.177) just new the answer once. And, when it remembers (only the first run), it doesn't know about the BDC.
