Hello there,

 From digging the archive - it looks as if this was discussed here earlier 
however I could not find a decent solution to my problem.

The problem is that I keep seeing the following errors on my nmbd.log:
[2003/01/30 09:34:34, 0] 
   Unable to find the Domain Master Browser name WGNAME<1b> for the 
workgroup WGNAME.
   Unable to sync browse lists in this workgroup.

         workgroup = WGNAME
         server string = wins server
         log level = 2
         lock directory = /var/lock/samba
         security = user
         encrypt passwords = Yes
         hosts allow = xxx.xxx.xxx.
         wins support = Yes
         os level = 65
         lm announce = No
         preferred master = Yes
         local master = yes
         dns proxy = No

Any idea what am I doing wrong?
