Computer browser service won't stay running
Posted on 2006-07-13
I have a new install of Windows 2003 SBS. Hardware is dual Opteron 2.4 on an MSI MB w/2GB ECC RAM & 2 400GB SATA dives in RAID 1 configuration (hardware raid). It has been promted to DC, & I was installing exchange. I have done this about 50 times & it usually goes off without a hitch, so I could probably do it in my sleep. Here is my problem: dcdiag runs with no errors, but netdiag fails the DC list test. So I look in services mmc & sure enough, the computer browser service is not running — it is, however, set to auto. So I attempt to start it & it starts, but then immediatly stops. I googled the error for several hours last night to no avail.
Any ideas what is causing this before I call MS.
