Browser Wars Galore !

By elfer ·
We are having terrible browswer master wars going on on our network. All kinds of NT servers, NT workstation and Win9x stations announcing themselves as browse master and causing these dreaded "election wars". We are running WINS, DHCP & DNS (Microsoft), and are in a VLAN'd environment. We can't seem to find any real good documentation/troubleshooting sources to tell us how to a) properly setup browsing and b) troubleshoot or "demote" machines that think they are browse masters. Can any of you help, please ??

Hi, Microsoft technet has a comprehensive technical white paper titled, "MS windows NT Browser" by R.Dan Thompson IV and Randy McLaughlin. This may be on the on-line version of technet (it's on my cd copy). Also, respondent #1 noted Q102878 titled "Information on Browser Operation. also there is Q188305, "Troubleshooting the Microsoft Computer Browser Service." Also, at http://www.platinumtechnology.com is "Browser Issue on microsoft networks." And the registry paramater to turn off browsing onnt is: HKeylocalmachine\system\currentcontrolset\services\browser\prarameters. Set value to auto, yes (on) or no (off). For 95, rt.click on network neighborhood|properties|configuration. Select file & print sharing for ms networks. Click properties|advanced|under property select browse master. Under value select auto, enabled or disabled. Click ok, ok again. Hope this helps.
