 Set "remote announce = 192.168.x.x 192.168.x.x" this being your broadcast
address to both network.  Also if using WINS, set "remote browse sync =
192.168.x.x" where this is the subnet that Samba IS NOT on.

Both in global.

Subject: [Samba] One SAMBA Server, two networks.


    I am making some changes to our network to split the front office and
back office onto two seperate subnets, but need to keep the same Samba
server in place serving both subnets.

    What I am intending to do is install an additional network card into the
server and address this new card for the new subnet. What I am looking to do
is properly broadcast the server's samba status/availability across both
networks and properly serve files/domain controller data across both

    To do this, I intend to duplicate all the entries in the lmhosts file in
/etc/samba with the only difference being the network that the server is
broadcasting on.

    Will this work, or is this more complicated then I am currently seeing?
