Thread: [Samba] weird election with non-existant machine

  1. [Samba] weird election with non-existant machine

    Forced Election:
    In workgroup WORKGROUP when announced server was:
    SYSTEM-1 (192.168.1.248) : 50 Time(s)
    SYSTEM-2 (192.168.1.183) : 2 Time(s)
    SYSTEM-3 (192.168.1.248) : 1 Time(s)

    Cannot get workgroup name from domain name browser:
    192.168.1.153 : 96 Time(s)

    192.168.1.153 was a mac running Leopard. It has not been on the network
    for a month, but this keeps happening. Does anyone have an idea where
    this address might be cached?

    Thanks,

    - Joel

    Depends on your distro, but in Slackware, when compiled without
    --with-hfs, it's like /var/cache/samba or /var/lib/samba. I'm fairly
    sure that it should be in the /var directory. Try doing a 'lsof' and
    see if the samba process has anything open from there that isn't a log
    file. IIRC, it should be a DBD.

    Search for a file called wins.dat, remove it, restart samba and go for a
    coffee.
