As far as I examined, "remote browse sync" parameter does not work as
described in smb.conf(5).
In addition to the description in smb.conf(5),
1) both Samba box must be a **domain** master browse because they
need to receive a Master Announcement.
2) both Samba box must be a WINS server because the workgroup name
included in received Master Announcement packet must exists in
The following smb.conf is a minimum one to work remote browse sync
workgroup = SAMBA01 (should be same atboth Samba box)
domain master = Yes
wins support = Yes
remote browse sync = x.x.x.x (shoube be the other Samba box's IP)
enhanced browsing = No (or Yes)
At least this behavior differs from that in smb.conf(5).
This behavior is by design or a bug?
Umm, this parameter is really used ?
