os level in samba.conf


I am using cent os 5.In samba.conf there is a
PHP Code:
os level 33 
The thing which I want to know that if the server machine is 32 bit then what I should remove 33 & write 32 and if the server is 64 bit then definately it will be 64.

In shory I want to know for 32 bit OS what should I write in os level ?

thanks

The value has no association to anything hardware related.

OS level is number between 0 and 255 that sets the the operating-system value it reports for itself in browser elections. A higher number means it will beat out all other computers to become the master browser. Basically Windows servers are lower then 33 so this will make the samba server the highest.

This might shed some more light on the subject.

For a domain controller I would make it the highest value i.e. 255
