Redirector problem between two servers

By nicocom ·
I have to servers running NT4 SP6a

RASTA is PDC, ZEUS is BDC, on the same domain.

From time to time and for no obvious reason, a rdr (redirector) event appears in the Event viewer of both computers. Here is what the log says :

13/11/01 00:08:46 Rdr Error 8003
RASTA The master browser has received a server announcement from the computer ZEUS that believes that it is the master browser for the domain on transport NetBT_E100B1. The master browser is stopping or an election is being forced.

13/11/01 11:35:03 Srv Error 2006
RASTA The server received an incorrectly formatted request from \\ZEUS.

13/11/01 13:40:47 Srv Error 2006
RASTA The server received an incorrectly formatted request from (?).

13/11/01 11:35:03 Rdr Warning 3005
ZEUS The redirector received an incorrectly formatted response from RASTA.

13/11/01 11:36:56 Rdr Warning 3013
ZEUS The redirector has timed out a request to RASTA.

ZEUS is also a file server, and when the event occurs, clients (NT4 worstations) cannot connect to the shared folders on the server. I have to reboot ZEUS AND RASTA to make things work again. Can someone help ?

Check out article Q135464 on Microsoft's KB.

Another alternative is to change Zues to be a different type of browser.

Those are:
Non-Browser Servers - Do not maintain browse lists, but announce themselves periodically to the Master Browser.Potential Browser - Can become a Browser server if needed.
Backup Browser - Maintains a browse list of servers and domains that it retrieves from the Master Browser.

These settings can be configured in the network properties (I think) or through the registry.

You may also set RASTA to be the DOMAIN MASTER BROWSER, or PREFERRED MASTER BROWSER.
