Dear sirs, i`m need to chanche location of browse.dat file. By default 
it store in /var/cache/samba
Change parameter "lock directory" in smb.conf is not help.
Samba version is 3.0.24 (from debain pkg)

I`m try to start 2 domains from one server. I`ve got my 2 config files 
(with separate pids, net interfaces, log files) and both servers run, 
bound to the correct interfaces.
Both domain starting normally, become a domain logon servers, domain 
master browserss & local master brousers. All work - except one problem 
- both servers try to use one /var/cache/samba/browse.dat file.

start smbd&nmbd with option --lockdir=/var/cache/samba/domainname/  not 
with --lockdir i`m see files:
brlock.tdb       gencache.tdb  messages.tdb  sessionid.tdb
connections.tdb  locking.tdb   printing      share_info.tdb
in separate domains directorues, but browse.dat is single in 

WBR, Evgeny Pchelin
