Oh, great! This would be clear some problems... :)
Nothing is more badly than wrong infos!

ok, then i can set up my smb.conf for MAIL1 (DMB..) like this...
domain master = yes
preferred master = yes
local master = yes
os level = 64
wins support = no
wins server = 22.214.171.124

No problem... i only was confused because of the info from the samba book... :)
But there´re still three question which should be answered - (it would be great)!
First of all - why isn´t there an entry for the master browser here:
dump workgroup on subnet UNICAST_SUBNET: netmask= 126.96.36.199:
LINUX-AG(1) current master browser = UNKNOWN
MAIL1 40019a23 (Mailserver PH-Fr.)
Mail1 is LMB and DMB... and 188.8.131.52, the NT-WINS-Server, has recorded
Mail1 as DMB:
nmblookup -R -U 184.108.40.206 Linux-AG#1b
Got a positive name query response from 220.127.116.11 ( 18.104.22.168 )
About every 30 seconds the DMB anounce in log.nmb "announce_myself_to_
domain_master_browser" but there´s no message like this "Samba ... is now a domain
Every minutes a LMB wants to synchronize (think so) his browsing list and the log.nmb
of Mail1 (DMB) contains this:
"Local master announce made to us from ... and we are not a domain master browser"
Hm... this is a littel mysteries.
Luke, I know it´s a lot i want to know, but i would be very glad if you
ore someone else can help me! (Maybe it´s only a problem in 2.0.6?)
Tomorrow I´ll make some tests with other samba releases.
