Making Samba win browser elections

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.
