  Hi people.

  I have finally my PDC+BDC running with LDAP+replicaon different subnets.

  My doubts are simple, I want to understand a little more about BDC.
  My network is this:

   Domaine Name=DOMA
   BDC= wins server = PDC

   As u can see, both serves exist on different subnets,I want to save
bandwidth,this is the reason I setup a BDC in my other network, now,
what are the correct settings for the network browser for my BDC:

        preferred master = No (Just the PDC)
        wins server =  (PDC IP)
        wins support = No  (Just the PDC=yes)
        domain logons = Yes
        domain master = No   (This just for the PDC)
        local master = Yes   ??????

   This are right for my BDC?, every time I setup a BDC on different
subnet do I have to use local master = Yes? or this wouldn't make any

   Samba 3.3.x Centos 5.5.

LIving the dream...
