[Samba] Samba4/Franky and wins/nmb

  I have a question about netbios browsing in samba4. When I follow Samba4/Franky Howto
I'm unable to browse my domain on windows clients (Win XP, 7). I see no computers in my domain
in Network places.
It wrotes that I have not permission to use this network resources (even for Domain Admins).

I have "option netbios-dd-server; option netbios-node-type 2;" in DHCP for clients.

It works with nmbd from samba3 but not with the samba4.

The difference I see is in:
# nmblookup SAMBA4DOMAIN#1d
Lookup failed - NT_STATUS_IO_TIMEOUT
# nmblookup SAMBA3DOMAIN#1d SAMBA3DOMAIN<1d>

I'm able to disable nbt service in samba4 but then the samba3 nmbd doesn't
maintain #1c requests without domain logons=yes. Is it ok to set samba3 (Franky)
domain logons=yes? Or did I misconfigured something in samba4?
How can I see the nmb/wins list in samba4? There is HUP signal for nmbd in samba3 but
I don't know how I can obtain such list for samba4.

Below I provide Franky config I use.

Thank you for your help


samba4 config:
        server role = domain controller
        workgroup = SAMBA4DOMAIN
        realm = SAMBA4.DOMAIN
        netbios name = PDC01
        server string = PDC01

        bind interfaces only = yes
        interfaces =

        # Franky
        server services = -smb, -winbind

samba3 config:
        workgroup = SAMBA4DOMAIN
        realm = SAMBA4.DOMAIN
        netbios name = PDC01

        bind interfaces only = yes
        interfaces =

        security = user
        passdb backend = ads
        auth methods = guest netlogond

        rpc_server:lsarpc = external
        rpc_server:netlogon = external
        rpc_server:samr = external

        browse list = yes
        enhanced browsing = no
        domain master = yes
        local master = yes
        os level = 64
        preferred master = yes

        wins support = yes
        dns proxy = yes
