There are 2 win2k computers and 2 print-server device (ps101 and another linksys printer-server) all of sudden disappear from my office workgroup. I can still ping them and they can ping others, but all the 2 computer can see in the workgroup is itself. I do a `browstat status` and it reveal that they somehow become master browser. I tried to disable computer browser and change to registry Maintainlist = No but still it doesn't resolve the problem. They still can't recognised my linux file server as master browser. We use no dns by the way.
I use browstat view /device/prot_nic_from_master which got the 2 machine+ 2 print server device missing. But the rest ok.
