MRxSmb error

Hi guys ..

I found this in my event viewer today.

Source: MRxSmb
Error ID: 8003
Description: The master browser has received a server announcement from the computer ANTHONY-B3LHACK that believes that it is the master browser for the domain on transport NetBT_Tcpip_{46E4B0A7-6B2. The master browser is stopping or an election is being forced.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at

I remember there is a workabout on this issue, by turning off one of the machine to annouce that it is the master browser. But can't remember how it is done. Can anyone teach me please? For Win98, Win2K and preferably on WinXP too.

Many thanks!! : )
You dont really need to worry about this error.

If however you want to stop it from occuring open regedit and go to:


Set IsDomainMaster to FALSE
Set MaintainServerList to FALSE

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
