No

In "Samba windows file sharing" I don't find "preferred master" parameter, so I write it in "Edit Config File" section, when I do this, I save changes and restart samba. In this case it works, but when I try to change some other value in any section (not by editing smb.conf) and restart samba, then "preferred master" parameter disappeared from smb.conf

    There is a setting on the Windows Networking Options page called "Master browser?" that controls the "preferred master" setting. Is that not working for you?

    Yes. now I see, that if I set "Master browser = yes", in smb.conf no string about "Master browser = yes", but if I set "Master browser = no", I see string "Master browser = no" in smb.conf.

    PS By Default (without any string about "Master browser" in smb.conf) samba set "Master browser = auto", but I want to set it to "Master browser = yes"

    Sory, previous comment have some errors, so I fix it :

    Yes. now I see, that if I set "Master browser = yes", in smb.conf no string about "preferred master = yes", but if I set "Master browser = no", I see string "preferred master = no" in smb.conf.

    PS By Default (without any string about "preferred master = no" in smb.conf) samba set "preferred master = auto", but I want to set it to "preferred master = yes"

    Ok, that explains it - Webmin doesn't know about the "auto" option. I will fix this in the next release..
