Hi I am getting this error in the system event log on quite a few machines on my domain but no errors on the domain controller:-

Event id 8032  source BROWSER

The browser service has failed to retrieve the backup list too many times on transport \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{578AD541-6EE4-4502-A444-C2F190724FC2}. The backup browser is stopping.
