Event Msg 8005 warning

By jbklyman ·
MS TechNet search - browser received a server msg indicating that the computer computer name is a master browser, but it is not a master browser. ANS = Contact admin if msg repeats more than 6 time.

Question: I have pages of this message, "am the admin", and can't find anything more specific on resolving this error. Where can I dig from here?? (it ain't on MS TechNet searches I've done).

Try this page:
(please remove any spaces)

It tells you how to modify the Registry to make the machine NOT participate in Browser elections or be a master browser.

I suggest set IsDomainMaster to NO
and set
MaintainServerList to NO also.

Reboot (I am old fashioned in this regard!) and cross your fingers.

hope this helps
