I have a Samba Server 3.0.23a running on a Fedora 4.

Since Vista entered my lan I've been having problems with master browser elections. When a Vista client connects to my workgroup it kills the network neighbourhood and the only machines seen is the vista client and my fileserver.

By changing the regedit entries on the client side following this advice:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SYSTEM > CurrentControlSet > Services > Browser >
        MaintainServerList = No
        IsDomainMaster = FALSE

seemed to help a bit, but the problem still remains. There is one user with a Vista Home Edition that still have this problem.

The global part of smb.conf:

   netbios name = XXXX-FILE
   workgroup = XXXX
   security = user
   server string = Samba ver. %v

   interfaces =
   bind interfaces only = yes

#  For Vista compability
   client lanman auth = no
   client ntlmv2 auth = yes

   domain master = yes
   local master = yes
   preferred master = yes
   os level = 255

   encrypt passwords = yes
   null passwords = yes
   username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
   guest account = mmt

   wins support = yes
   name resolve order = wins lmhosts hosts dns

A typical log when it dies:

Sorry for wrapping lines, the Samba machine is at and Vista client is
