    Domain Not Available

    Hello all,

    Recently I went to make changes to our backup selections but was unable to
    do so on remote selections from Veritas. I then went into Windows explorer
    from a domain controller and wet to My Network Places, Entire Network,
    Microsoft Windows Network, Domain. Then I receive an error message stating
    the following.
    "Domain is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network
    resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have
    access permissions.
    The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available."

    I am logged in as the domain administrator so I dont think permissions is
    the issue.

    Next I run netdiag from the windows support tools on the domain controller
    and recieve the message for the DC list test as failed. "Failed to enumerate
    DCs by using the browser. [Error_NO_BROWSER_SERVERS_FOUND]

    Next I run dcdiag and the only failure I receive is on the system log.

    Next I run browstat status and receive "Status for domain DOMAIN on
    transport \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{C9680631-BE28-$^A4-ABE9-B72A63C1727F}
    Browsing is NOT active on domain. Status : 6118
    Master name cannot be determined from GetAdapterStatus.

    I also went into the registry and changed the key
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Browser\Parameters
    IsDomainMaster = Yes

    I rebooted the server and still the error persists.

    Can anyone provide me some further direction? I REALLY appreciate it.

    Keith



    Yes the computer browser service is running and DNS appears to be without
    error. I'm very puzzled by this issue.

    I can browse the web, ping by hostname, enter \\servername to see file
    shares, and even enter nslookup and get the correct information. This just
    started happening out of nowhere.

    Keith

    Hi - got WINS? If you need to browse, you should have WINS running properly,
    and of course make sure NetBIOS over TCP/IP is enabled on all your machines
    & that they're registered properly in WINS.

    Re: Domain Not Available

    I found the solution. On my dc there was a message in the event log saying
    that a workstation won the master browser election. I remoted onto the
    workstation saw that it was running windows 2000 professional. I went into
    services, stopped the computer browser service, and then disabled it. Strange
    issue I must say. It took me hours to figure this one out.

    I like to disable the computer browser service on all domain computers via
    GPO - makes life easier. Although if you have WINS running you shouldn't
    necessarily have the problem anyway.
