Event 8003, bowser The master browser has received a server announcement from the computer

The master browser has received a server announcement from the computer LAT200AD038 that believes that it is the master browser for the domain on transport NetBT_Tcpip_{13450C97-3382-4B6A-A068-0625B9BCE0BB}. The master browser is stopping or an election is being forced.

Have tried HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Browser\Parameters
Create a Reg_Sz string IsDomainMaster and set it to FALSE

If this is problematic, the best solution might be just to stop the Computer Browser service on LAT200AD038. That will stop it from participating in any browser elections.

The whole Master Browser election process seems to have always been a tad buggy and inconsistent in operation. In 2018 it really is not that relevant in most situations. Users seldom browse the old "network neighbourhood" to locate shares, they are usually mapped to a server by scripts, GPOs or manually.

Usually, the Master Browser election process somehow figures itself out, and it usually does not matter if it does not.

I have to agree to above. I always disable Computer Browser on client OS, because the election process is very flaky with mixed OS, and Active Directory / DNS, optionally WINS, works well enough.

Computer Browser disabled on the problem computer.

The 8003 did show up but that is a different computer.
Let me guess that the Computer Browser disabled is a fix because that particular computer has not triggered 8003 for 6 days.
