sounds like you should configure a dedicated Master Browser for that segment...pick one machine from that network that stays on all the time, and set the registry so that it will become the MB. Then reboot the system...

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Browser\Parameters\MaintainServerList = Yes

this way you should always have an MB active, so the Backups will find it.

ps. I don't think that this message is really a huge deal...if the browsing problems aren't creating network problems from the users, then you could just ignore it

I'm having this same problem, but it's on a Windows 2003 Network.  There are three servers - two AD (one remotely via VPN) and one Citrix.  This is error is occuring on the CITRIX server.  All servers have latest patches / fixes etc... the Citrix server is BRAND NEW (even been dumped and reformatted when we couldn't fix this error before).  But what is occuring - is after 24 to 48 hours of getting this error, we can no longer communicate to the network with this server (and vice-versa).  So no one can reach this server nor can this server reach anyone else.  I've researched all sorts of articles on this and even looked at the above solution (however, it appears that in Windows 2003 Server, this is the default already??  As I didn't have to make this change, it was already there in the AD).  Any other ideas how to solve this?  It's an Intel Server 875 motherboard (P4) if that helps at all (NIC is onboard).  Any ideas?  This is the first time I've been stumped in many years.  Thanks,
Shawn
