Hi,

I am running a Win2k Server for essentially, a windows
XP/2000 network of clients. Interestingly enough, when
browsing the domain today, only one user appeared in teh
domain structure. I restarted the server, everything
worked again, and several hours later, same problem
occured.

I checked error logs and came up with the following:

"The master browser has received a server announcement
from the computer FU1ANITO that believes that it is the
master browser for the domain on transport NetBT_Tcpip_
{E3134ACB-AE20-4C12-. The master browser is stopping or an
election is being forced. "

Does anyone have any info related to what might be causing
this, and steps to prevent it in the future. I ran virus-
scan on user's computer with no results, just in case that
is a variable.

THANKS!
