Apologies for posting to the BSD list - but the Samba lists couldn't help

I upgraded 6 PC's to 10/100 and also changed an IP address or 2 in the
process. On the ones that had an IP address change, I reflected the new
IP
in the DNS Zone file.

Since the upgrade I've been getting the following on the nightly output.
I've tried enabling WINS and DNS Proxy in smb.conf. I need to fix this
before I can put the main software that they use on it.

I don't know if it's related but last week FreeBSD started getting 
watchdog packet errors and then losing all com's.
It did this twice and has been OK since, the nightly email errors
persist though

TIA

I've also trawled around the mailing lists and seen the common replies
about
Wins client and server battling - here is my testparm output to allay
those
ideas.

su-2.05a# testparm | grep ins

        allow trusted domains = Yes
        name resolve order = lmhosts host wins bcast
        max wins ttl = 518400
        min wins ttl = 21600
        wins proxy = No
        wins server =
        wins support = No
        wins hook =
