Description

Recommend the following changes be made to the [Global] section in smb.conf:
  • 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.
