Samba Release Account [Wed, 12 Mar 1997 20:21:11 +0000 (20:21 +0000)]
added code that checks whether the DOMAIN<1b> name is claimed on the
local subnet _before_ going and registering it.  the reason for this
is that i don't want to cause chaos by registering the name twice.

it's ok to register DOMAIN<1b> with the WINS server, because the WINS
server's job is to check a) _if_ there's a current owner of the name
b) if the current owner exists c) if the current owner still wants the
name.  if they don't, the WINS server responds by saying, 'yes, you can
have it'.

1) updated ipc.c NetUserGetInfo - load \\%L\%U instead of \\%L\HOMES
   because the share must be browseable by a w95 client

2) send_mailslot_reply - unique or group datagram argument added.

3) netlogon.c - rewrote response packet to do the right thing for w95.

4) server.c reply_nt1() - added OEMDomainstring to the end.

5) (deep breath) reworked the nmbd-browsing code a little bit.
   i discovered two months ago that becoming a primary domain controller
   (and domain master browser) is done independently of becoming a
   backup domain controller (logon server) is done independently of
   becoming a local master browser.

   therefore, three sets of state-machines (instead of just one) are in
   place - each of which is responsible for taking samba through the
   required stages to become:  a logon server; a domain master browser;
   and a local master browser.

   each of these three things can occur independently on each interface,
   _including_ the wins pseudo-interface.  the only slight caveat is that
   the wins pseudo-interface, by virtue of _not_ being a broadcast
   interface, does _not_ register as a local master browser with the wins
   server, as this doesn't make sense.
