10.10.0.12 is one of the member servers and 10.10.0.15 is a 2003 R2 domain controller. There is also an error on the member server that says it tried to become the master browser but was not able to, so the domain controller is the master browser. We do not use WINS. How can we eliminate this error?
Thank you for your post.
Have you tried to force a Browser election on your PDC?
However, shutting down and restarting a computer that is configured as the preferred master browse server, or stopping and restarting Computer Browser service on that computer, forces the building of a new browse list. This happens because when a preferred master browse server starts, it forces an election, which it wins. The preferred master browse server has no browse list at startup, so it then forces all members of the domain or workgroup to announce themselves.
Shutting down and restarting your PDC, or stopping and restarting Computer Browser service on that computer would force an election.
