Description Florian Heer 2003-09-22 15:35:47 UTC
I configured my samba using SWAT to be the WINS-Server, so I left the
WINS-Server-Textfield blank. The result was that SWAT created an entry called
WINS-Server with a value of in my smb.conf. nmbd refused to start as
it considers the existence of that entry a contradiction to the fact that the
samba server itself is the WINS server.

Please provide more information.

I need to know precisely what you entered.

Did you click the radio button that says "Server for client use" or did you
click the radio button on "Client of another WINS server"?

Never heard back from reporter. Closing this as it would have generated follow-up if it is still a problem.

Case closed!
