Browser contention between PDC and BDC
Posted on 1998-12-10
The event error keeps popping up on my BDC, giving the message:
"The master browser has received announcement from the computer SBSP (my PDC) that believe that it is the master browser for the domain on transport NwlnkNb (Network Link NetBios). The master browser is stopping or an election is being forced".
As a result of this, my users takes a long time to browse their network neighbourhood, probably because the browser keeps holding election, taking up resources.
How do I solve this problem?
I tried changing the registry of both the PDC and BDC such
that the PDC IsDomainMaster= True
and the BDC IsDomainMaster=False.
But still the error keeps popping up.
