browse master in win xp pro

by Ann777 In reply to browse master in win xp p ...

One can control how a computer participate in the Master Browser election, with these STRING registry keys :

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \System \CurrentControlSet \Services \Browser \Parameters]
MaintainServerList = "Auto" (Pro = "Auto", Server = "Yes", Off = "No")
IsDomainMaster = "True" (On = "True", Off = "False", Default = "False")

The MaintainServerList controls if it should participate in the election at all.
The IsDomainMaster gives the computer a higher priority in the election.

Note if the service Computer Browser is disabled then the computer will not participate in the election.
