Samba Configuration Changes
- Change os level = 60 to os level = 35
- Add the following:
- name resolve order = bcast lmhosts host wins
- domain master = yes
This will eliminate the error below in the /var/log/nmbs.log file:
Unable to sync browse lists in this workgroup. [2019/08/22 20:11:09.927547, 0] ../source3/nmbd/nmbd_browsesync.c:354(find_domain_master_name_query_fail) find_domain_master_name_query_fail: Unable to find the Domain Master Browser name WORKGROUP<1b> for the workgroup WORKGROUP.
This error occurs quite frequently. Also the changes appear to make Samba work correctly.
Since making these changes manually, I have had no issues and the log messages disappeared.
Researched proper Samba configuration for several days which yielded these proposed changes.

Can you test your samba with windows clients with these settings on the global section?
vfs objects = catia fruit streams_xattr fruit:aapl = yes fruit:resource = file fruit:metadata = netatalk fruit:locking = netatalk fruit:encoding = native fruit:model = MacSamba
I have been using the
errors you suggested above for ~24hours and so far so good. However, the master one makes me quite nervous. IIRC it had big big implications.
