Unable to browse network neighbourhood in a Windows 2003 environme

Unable to browse network neighbourhood in a Windows 2003 environment from
secondary subnet.

shows:-

You might not have permission to use this network resource.
The list of servers for this workgroup is currently unavailable



We are not running WINS. All servers have teamed fail on fault config.

Network browsing works from main subnet where the master browser is.

Have tried browstat stuff (from MS Articles) and servers on the secondary
subnet report

browstat status shows:-

Status for domain <domain> on transport \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{75B444DA-C019-4E
D8-8A71-B9F5ACED78C3}
Browsing is NOT active on domain. Status : 6118
Master name cannot be determined from GetAdapterStatus.


Status for domain <domain> on transport \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{9FD4D28F-D285-4B
67-9403-4869775DA27D}
Browsing is NOT active on domain. Status : 6118
Master name cannot be determined from GetAdapterStatus.

We noticed the other day that the master browser was on behind a firewall.
This has been rectified and the master broweser is now a DC (PDC Emulator) in
primary subnet. We left it a few days expecting it to sort itself out but no
joy.


Netbios over TCP/IP is set to default. Server have static IP addresses.


Event log shows

Event Type: Error
Event Source: BROWSER
Event Category: None
Event ID: 8032
Date: 21/06/2006
Time: 13:24:54
User: N/A
Computer: <computer>
Description:
The browser service has failed to retrieve the backup list too many times on
transport \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{75B444DA-C019-4ED8-8A71-B9F5ACED78C3}. The
backup browser is stopping.


Any help will be gratefully received.

You need a WINS server with multiple subnets.
