Description Rod Smith 2003-10-19 10:59:10 UTC
The man page for nmblookup says that "nmblookup -M -" searches for a master 
browser for a network by searching for the machine with the "__MSBROWSE__" name. 
This works with Samba 2.2.7a, but not with 3.0.0. With 3.0.0, nmblookup returns 
the usage summary information, as if the command had been mistyped.

In 3.0 you need to escape the - sign on the command line:

nmblookup -M -- -
