Unless you set it the OS level defaults to 0 meaning that it most likely
not will the bowsemaster electtion requests.  Include 'os level = 64' in
the global section of your smb.conf and see if that helps,

One more question.  What is the machine name of your Samba server?  Do
not name the server SAMBA and the workgroup SAMBA.

Hope this helps,
