Error 8005

By bfeltus ·
Receiving error message 8005 in event log:
"The broswer has received a server announcement indicating that the computer MYSERVER is a master browser, but this computer is not a master browser." This server is a member server in a netware environment. We do not have domains, pdc, bdc. What does this mean, how do I stop it. This is the only error message appearing in the event log. Thank you.

The answer is about 4 paragraphs down. Edit registry to stop browser service. The rest of the info is worth reading......

: Browser elections are normal occurrences in a Windows NT network. The elections guarantee that only one master browser is present in the Windows NT domain or workgroup. The election process also helps pass network information to systems as they log on to the network. Windows NT elects master browsers according to the following priority:

Windows NT Server installed as a Primary Domain Controller (PDC)
Windows NT Server
Windows NT Workstation
Other
Windows NT automatically elects the PDC to be the Domain Master Browser even if the value IsDomainMaster is set to Yes in the Registry on another Windows NT server within the domain.

If you are running workgroup servers (no domain controller) and want to force a server to be the preferred master browser, open the Registry and go to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SYSTEM \CurrentControlSet \Services \Browser \Parameters key. Set the value IsDomainMaster to Yes.

To Prevent a Windows NT Workstation or Server (non-PDC) from acting as a browser, open the Registry and go to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SYSTEM \CurrentControlSet \Services \Browser \Parameters key. Set the MaintainServerList value to No.
