event id 8009 : master browser // subnetmask problem
Posted on 2011-09-28
we have our pdc in vlan A (255.255.255.0) and our clients in Vlan B (255.255.252.0), C, D and E. The pdc has no physial nics in the other vlans
Our clients are giving :
Event ID: 8009
Description: The browser was unable to promote itself to master browser. The computer that currently believes it is the master browser is <PDC>.
This problem occurs if the subnet mask of the Windows NT client computer is incorrect or different from the PDC. The client computer attempts to promote itself to the master browser of the subnet and fails.
Any idea how to resolve this ?
Any help is greatly appreciated,
