    This line defines the order in which SAMBA tries to find the machine you want to connect to. bcast (network broadcast) or looking in your local lmhosts file probably did the job.

    Here some documentation which might help:

    OK, thanks for the information junky, thank you swerdna too, really appreciated.

    Too bad this settings are not part of the defaults, I'll look for a related issue on bugzilla if not I'll report it.

    Regards.

    Now that's a fine idea (putting sensible defaults into the config file). This options could be encapsulated in Yast.

    Just a passing thought.

    In fact I suppose I could write a script that simply backs up the default and inserts a workgroup-oriented samba.conf file in its place.
