Up until recently if I did a "smclient -L server -N" I would see all
the systems listed. If I went to a PC and opened "Network Neighborhood"
I would see the same list. Suddenly, several PCs see real short lists.
A command of "smclient -L server -N" still shows the long list, but
a command of "smclient -L client -N" shows that the client PC thinks
it is the browse master for the workgroup.
I am running samba 2.0.6. My config says:
workgroup = Ulticom
server string = Spike [the Rugrats dog]
log file = /var/samba/log.%m
local master = yes
os level = 45
domain master = yes
preferred master = yes
domain logons = no
So, shouldn't "os level = 45" guarantee that the server gets control?
I was having the server loose control to another system until I created
a cron job that runs every 5 minutes checking the server to make sure it
thinks it is the master and killing "nmbd" if it is not. This makes
the server become master again, however, some clients think they are
How do I fix this?
