I have a domain with Windows SBS 2003 as domain controller. It"s very common to get Master Browser errors in the logs, MRxSmb Event ID 8003. How can I avoid that? What have I done wrong?

I know how to solve this: Stop the Computer Browser service on clients, but I don"t know how to avoid this since the problem comes back every time I add a new client and I forget to stop the Computer Browser service.

Error message:

The master browser has received a server announcement from the computer that believes that it is the master browser for the domain ontransport NetBT_Tcpip_{#######-####-####-#. The master browser is stopping or an election is being forced.Is there an configuration of the server to avoid this problem?

You are watching: The master browser has received a server announcement



If you don"t have any legacy boxes on your network you can just disable the browser service entirely in a top-level Domain GPO: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/256345
