Hi all !

I have a PDC and a BDC in 2 differents subnets.
I would like to sync their browse list but it doesn't seem to work.

Actually here are a part my smb.conf files :

remote browse sync =
remote announce =
security = user
encrypt passwords = true
domain logons = Yes
os level = 70
preferred master = yes
domain master = yes
local master = yes
wins support = Yes

remote announce =
remote browse sync =
wins support = yes
security = user
encrypt passwords = yes
domain logons = Yes
os level = 69
preferred master =no
domain master = no

The BDC is unable to find the Domain Master Browser

nmblookup -U venise -R 'DOMAIN#1B'
name_query failed to find name domain#1b

nmblookup -U BDC -S PDC
name_query failed to find name PDC

[2008/11/14 11:55:51, 0]
  Unable to find the Domain Master Browser name DOMAIN<1b> for the workgroup
[2008/11/14 12:03:59, 0]
  process_master_browser_announce: Not configured as domain master - ignoring
master announce.

I really need help, the BDC has to be moved in another place.

Thank you !
