I'm having the same problem...Any resolution yet? However I am using a
NAT system between my two subnets and my logs show I definately get elected as the master on subnet (x) where the samba server is, but I need it to propogate to subnet (y) where the client is trying to sign in from. Any ideas out there? Please help if you can, thanks.
