I have 4 sites across WAN, each has its own NT/Samba domain and each has its own wins server.
1. If I put PDC as the remote target, it works for samba (will it works on NT pdc too?
2. If wins is installed on same machine as BDC, so it doesn't serve as MDB. Can I use this as "remote target"?

3. Broadcast address did not works (I already wait for 48 but never appears, with remote PDC it appears within less than 1 hour).

4. Can I use above parameter on many server in local site?

Second is how do I tell samba to find the DC for other site? Im trying to create trust but always get same error, even the PDC of remote target are already in dns and lmhost.

  Couldn't find domain controller for domain IRSCPK
