[Adrian Head] I used the "netbios alias = xxxx" in the smb.conf
for this but what I have been unable to do is get two sessions of samba
running at the same time so that only the cluster disk shares are
interrupted during takeover. Although, I've found many ideas on the
subject on the samba mailing list archives I haven't been able to get
any of them to work. I can only assume that the two binary versions I
have tried 2.0.5a and 2.0.6 have this feature turned off and I will need
to get the source and turn the multiple instance feature on. Any Ideas?
Sorry for the off-topic message.
