Master Browser election

I have a stand alone windows 2003 server in workgroup not a domain. The event
log has Event id 8019 (the browser was unable to promote itself to the master
browser. I would like to know is there a registry key to disable the election
process.

Re: Master Browser election

For the Windows NT'ish machines

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Browser\Parameters

Set all but the pc designated as browse master to

MaintainServerList = "No"
IsDomainMaster = "False"

RE: Master Browser election

Hi Ray,

Did you really want to stop elections or jsut make sure that the server is
always the Master Browser. Especially in a workgroup environment, I would
think you'd want to maintain the list?
