Adding to this. Set both of these under that same tree:
I had to do this on a laptop that was not joined to the domain but was in the
same workgroup. It was running XP Media Center and it just wouldn't let Samba
remain the master browser (despite an OS level of 255).
Probably most important is to make sure that the client(s) are really using
your WINS server (DHCP should assign this) - "ipconfig -all" will provide
Then use "nbtstat -R" and/or "nbtstat -RR" to reload/ReleaseRefresh the cache.
May want to reboot the client as well.
