    Linux on Windows Network


    Hi!

    I manage a Red Hat 7.3 Linux Penguin Server running on a primarily windows network. The network is an Active Directory network and the Linux box is broadcasting to it for the arp table updates.

    Problem: It seems that from time to time that the Main Active Directory Server (AKA PDC, in NT4) obtains an election for Master Browser from the Linux server. This in turns crashes the PDC and the Linux server. The IP's of the Linux server then become unroutable.

    Any ideas?

    I assume that means that you run samba on the Linux system? Set "local master = no" in your smb.conf, restart samba and see if that does the trick.
