Description Volker Lendecke 2003-04-29 00:36:07 UTC
With Samba 2.2 it was possible to add static wins entries
to the wins.dat as it was a text file. Samba 3.0 has moved
to a .tdb-file for the wins database, so hand-editing
is not an option anymore.

Comment 2 Gerald (Jerry) Carter 2003-04-29 09:24:25 UTC
changing to P3 since we have had numerous requests for this.
Comment 3 Gerald (Jerry) Carter 2003-04-29 09:27:13 UTC
I don't think using lmhosts to prime wins.tdb is a good
idea.  Please don't apply this patch.
Comment 4 Gerald (Jerry) Carter 2005-01-31 09:39:09 UTC
cleaning up old non-production versions
Comment 5 Gerald (Jerry) Carter 2005-02-08 21:17:34 UTC
Volker, I'm closing this one as later.  If you want to bring 
your patch up on samba-technical, feel free.
