    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.

    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"

    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?
