Hi Eduardo,
Browsing is problematic.  It could be a LOT of things;
What are the actual names that you are looking for in network
neighborhood for these two samba servers - are you really
looking for "smb1" and "smb2"?  Because in your smb.conf for 
smb2, you have specified the netbios name aruna, NOT smb2; so 
aruna is what is going to be in the browse list.
You may be able to get to it via run command by \\smb2, because
you are resolving the name "smb2" via dns...

Hi everybody!
I'm new to the list, and I wonder if someone could help me out.
I got tow Samba Servers(smb1 and smb2)
smb1 acts like master browser, master domain etc...
smb2 is just another samba server.
smb1 works fine, I can see the resources from a Win2K client, just with a
double click in the network neihgborhood.

smb2 works not so fine, when I tried to access it from network neighborhood
I cannot see it, I see a lot of win9x, win2k clients and smb1, but cannot
see smb2.

If I do Start->Run->\\smb2 I can see the resources, even I can map those
resources to the Windows clients.

I already read browsing.txt, Using Samba and a lot of web pages trying to
find the answer, but I couldn't.

Anyone knows how can I make this Samba Server shows in the network

I'm using Samba 2.2.1a on Solaris 8

Thanx in advance.
	Eduardo S.M.
