NT 4.0 : Computer Browser Problem

By mwt_loke ·
Hi,

For some strange reason, the computer browser on my Exchange Server (ver 5.5) on Windows NT 4.0 SP6a is unable to start. It will terminate with the following error in the Event Viewer :

Error Code: 2310 : The shared resource does not exist
Error Code : 7024 : The Computer Browser service terminated with service-specific error 2310.
Error Code : 8007 : The browser was unable to update the service status bits. The data is the error.

I am able to ping the server by name but could find the computer when using find computer or network neighbourhood or using net use to map to it directly. However the server can browse to other servers on the network.
I have tried to reapply service pack 6.0a and reinstall the workstation service which will reinstall Computer Browser service but to no avail.
The Computer Browser service on my Exchange server is critical because my backup server need to backup it over the LAN.
I need your expert advice badly. Thank you.

Regards,
Loke

NT 4.0 : Computer Browser Problem

by c1959j In reply to NT 4.0 : Computer Browser ...

One thing I have tried when I have received the Error Code 7024: The Computer Browser service terminated with server specific error code ... is a registry modification from Microsoft's site

To avoid this error, do one of the following:


Use the Registry Editor to change the MaintainServerList as described below:


Run Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).


In the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE subtree, go to the following subkey:


SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Browser\Parameters\MaintainServerList
Change MaintainServerList to Auto.

I set this to

Quit Registry Editor.

I also go to Services via the Control Panel - search for the Computer Browser service and stop and restart the service.

After I do this, when possible, Irestart the server. Hope this helps.
