master browser issue


Hi,

I have a DC (PDC,GC, FSMOs) which thinks it is the master browser.
I don;t want it to be the master browser.

The reg setting on the problem DC
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Browser\Parameters\IsDomainMaster=FALSE

and on the other memeber server =TRUE

They both think they are the member server.

How can I stop this behavior.
I have tried browstat and browcon, and read the MS white paper on Computer Browsers, and listened to the webcast for browcon, none explain what to do with a server which won;t give up the master.

I'm going to stop the service to see what happens...
