I installed samba4wins on two of my Fedora Core 3 servers (from src rpm),
on one PDC (samba 3.0.21c) and on one standalone server without samba, in
order to test samba4wins. I think I managed to install and to setup
properly the software but it seems nmblookup is not working on the PDC
samba:

[user]$ nmblookup '*'
querying * on 192.168.19.255
name_query failed to find name *

>From any other linux, including the standalone machine nmblookup '*'

works. I followed the instructions given on samba4wins-1.0.1-HOWTO.txt.

On the other side, I am having similar samba4wins records both for user
machines and for users! Is this ok? Please look below.

Thanks

My setup:

1. My PDC, eth0: 192.168.19.9 ("pdc") for the PDC, and 192.168.19.109
(pdc-wins) for samba4wins:

in /etc/samba/smb.conf:

netbios name = pdc
workgroup = group
bind interfaces only = yes
interfaces = 192.168.19.9
socket address = 192.168.19.255
wins server = 192.168.19.109

in /etc/samba4wins/samba4wins.conf:

[globals]
netbios name = pdc-wins
workgroup = migrupo
interfaces = 192.168.19.109
bind interfaces only = yes
log level = 4
nbtd:disable_broadcast = yes

2. in the linux without samba: eth0: 192.168.19.7 ("standalone") and for
samba4wins: 192.168.19.107 (standalone-wins)

[globals]
netbios name = standalone-wins
workgroup = group
interfaces = 192.168.19.107
bind interfaces only = yes
log level = 4
nbtd:disable_broadcast = no

3. in the PDC /var/lib/samba4wins/private/wins_config.ldb:

# returned 2 records
# record 1
dn: CN=STANDALONE-WINS,CN=PARTNERS
distinguishedName: CN=STANDALONE-WINS,CN=PARTNERS

# record 2

4. in the standalone server /var/lib/samba4wins/private/wins_config.ldb file:

# returned 2 records
# record 1

# record 2

Sama4wins is generating this kind of records:
