I encountered a pretty strange network issue with one Windows 7 laptop.
- Sometimes client cannot browse network (only this pc is visible in the list)
- There is a shared folder on another windows 7 laptop. When pinging this laptop with IP, I get reply. When pinging with host name, it is unreachable. If I check this PC with shared folder with nslookup, it returns wrong IP address.
- The client can ping all other PC's and servers in domain, with host name, except this one laptop.
I noticed there are also MxrSmb (8003) errors in server's event viewer, coming from this PC.
Have already added IsDomainMaster=FALSE to this laptop. No change what so ever.
Right now I am not able to check if the computer browser service is started on that PC, but maybe I should stop and disable it?
I also checked all the domain servers and all of thme have the" IsDomainMaster" set to FALSE in registry.
Shouldn't there be one server with it set to AUTO or TRUE?
Also tried the" browstat status" command and it returned answer that serverXX is the master browser (even though it is set to IsDomainMaster=FALSE).
Any ideas on how to proceed further on this problem would be great, since I am really running out of ideas.
