The browser service has failed to retrieve the backup list too many times on transport
Posted on 2003-03-17
Hi to all,
I periodically get the following message in my event log:--
The browser service has failed to retrieve the backup list too many times on transport \Device\NetBT_FA311ND42. The backup browser is stopping.
This also seems to trigger all internet activity on this NT4 Server stops working. to resolve this I simply reboot the server,
This is our DC running NT4 SP6, it has 2 network cards (although only using 1).
before this event, the previous event (The browser was unable to retrieve a list of servers from the browser master \\xxxxx on the network \Device\NetBT_FA311ND42. The data is the error code.)
xxxxx is the name of different Pc's on our LAN.
Although internet access ceases inlcuding LAN traffic from the server (ie. I cannot ping a local lan address) everything else appears to fine.
Does anyone have any ideas why I am getting these errors which stop internet access, and how to stop them?
Many thanks in advance
