Things look quiet here. But I've been doing a lot of blogging at dan.langille.org because I prefer WordPress now. Not all my posts there are FreeBSD related. I am in the midst of migrating The FreeBSD Diary over to WordPress (and you can read about that here). Once the migration is completed, I'll move the FreeBSD posts into the new FreeBSD Diary website.

Making Samba win browser elections 18 March 1999

One of the things that occurs from time to time is a browse election between NT and Samba.  I prefer to let samba win.  Here's how to do it.

This information is from smb.conf and is second hand.  I haven't tried it yet, but I will eventually.

os level = 100 will make it win them all, perferred master = yes will make it win most (it's what I use, and it wins them all).

You might want to try domain master = yes, for multiple subnets.
