	We had sort of the same problem. :)  The NT network kept losing it's

	I had the Samba 2.0.3 machine running with all the settings to NO.. 
even at
that, I guess the Samba machine was still winning the vote even 
everything was disabled.  Then I tried  os level = 0  - this seems 
to have
worked.  Well the network browselist isn't being upset every 12 
minutes now

Hello fellow Samba users,
My question is, why does one of my Samba servers take on the role of PDC

either NT crashes ( the nice thing about MS OS) or if I have reboot?

Is there a way to stop this?  On both my Samba servers, the smb.conf has 
domain master = no and one of the Samba servers acts as a WINS server. The 
security setting for both Samba servers is security = Domain.

Thanks for your help,

Lanny Baron
