  • Disabling Computer Browser Service

    I have a Win2k3 Domain, Exchange 2003
    DC's are DHCP and DNS, No WINS in env.
    My second DC is showing these errors and all other servers in my production
    servers are showing these errors.

    When I run browstat status <domain> I see both my DC's, but I see a third
    host which is usually a client PC, which most of my users run Win2k3 Server.
    When I run this over and over, I get the same 2 DC's, but always a different
    host.

    Would setting the computer browser service on my client machines to manual
    change anything? Or even disabling the computer browser on these client
    machines.

    What are the pros and cons?

    Event ID 8032 and 8021 on my servers

    thanks

    You can disable the browser service on clients. That will stop them from taking over the local master browser role, but as long as each subnet has a server that is not a problem.
