Description Michael Keller 2004-01-16 08:04:31 UTC
NMBD runs as a wins server. Doing a nmblookup -R -U winsserver linuxmachine puts 
an entry to the namelist with a ttl=7200 and source=DNS_NAME. This is ok. After 
the time elapsed this entry is still in the namelist, because it isn't deleted 
by the routine 'expire_names' from 'nmbd_namelistdb.c'. It seems that this 
routine is not going through the subnet 'wins_server_subnet' where this entry 

Here is the relevant part from the log:

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
