Harry

Hi!

I have 3 Windows 2003 Severs:

1) Domain Controller
2) Exchange Server
3) File Server

I get this event logged in the System category of Event Viewer for around 10
times a day on the exchange Server and the file server.
Iam still hunting for an answer. Has anybody come across this error- if so
pl pass me the solution.
Iam looking to have an error free event viewer and Iam pretty much close to
it. :)

Description The browser service has failed to retrieve the backup
list too many times on transport \Device\NetBT_N1001. The backup
browser is stopping.
Things to understand What does NetBT mean?
What is the role of the Browser service?
What is a backup list?
Comments Anonymous (Last update 7/23/2007):
I had this problem on a Windows 2003 R2 Server x32 running in
Microsoft Virtual Server 2005. The server was multihomed and running a
teaming load balance between the two NICs. The server itself had no
problems but the Virtual Server running on it did. I performed the
following registry tweak to resolve the problem.
Change the following registry key value to False and reboot the
computer: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Browser
\Parameters\MaintainServerList".

Anonymous (Last update 6/11/2007):
I was seeing this event along with Event ID 8021 from the same source.
I ran Netdiag and found that the Messenger service was disabled.
Windows Domain Controllers need this service running. I started this
service and both errors did not return.

R. Hodge (Last update 5/8/2007):
M188305 is a useful article with information on troubleshooting MASTER
BROWSER issues in Windows servers.
If you are having a particular problem with a server that is part of
the domain and it is constantly forcing elections to be the Master
Browser, look at the subnet mask and make sure it is correct. I had
this issue with one server.

Ionut Marin (Last update 11/27/2006):
The computer that shows this event is a backup browser. Backup
browsers periodically retrieve the browse list from the master
browser. The event notifies you that the computer could not retrieve
the browse list from the master browser five times consecutively. See
MSW2KDB for possible causes for this event.

As per Microsoft: "If the browser client is trying to locate a browser
server on each endpoint, it waits until it either one receives valid
information or times out on each endpoint before returning. This
process can be slow if there is an endpoint that does not contain
browser servers. When this is completed, the lists are merged into one
master list that is presented to the user". See M288801 for more
details.

See M191611 and M888816 for additional information on this event.

Rob Moss (Last update 6/15/2006):
This error occurred on one Domain Controller while we were trying to
pull a domain together with a software VPN prior to going to a full
time hardware VPN. The RAS server listed the VPN Server address above
its own NIC address in the Name Server field in DNS. The quick
solution was simply to raise the NIC address of the RAS server to the
top of the DNS name server list in the network settings of the server
that displayed the browser 8032 event error. As soon as this was done
the server could enumerate all computers within the domain, rather
than just the two servers on the client end of the RAS/VPN connection.
Hope this makes sense.

Anonymous (Last update 9/24/2004):
This problem can occur if the File and Print Service component was not
selected during the initial setup of the server or it has been
uninstalled. When this occurs, the Server Service does not bind to the
NetBIOS interface. A Windows-based computer that becomes a backup
browser and does not have File and Print Sharing enabled is unable to
share out the browse list to clients. Any computer that is to be
included in the browse list must also have File and Print Sharing
enabled.

See M188001 for a description of the Microsoft Computer Browser
service.

This problem appears on our Win2k servers, when we used VPN on the
master browser computer which also provides DNS and is a Win2k3 PDC.
VPN/RAS creates a new DNS entry when the first VPN client is logging
on. After removing the DNS entry for VPN the event disappears.

Rob (Last update 12/2/2003):
I have 2 Win2K3 servers, one is the DC, the other an application
server. Both have single network cards. The application server always
got these messages and would not browse the network. I found that
setting the "ISDomainMaster" to TRUE on the DC solves this problem.
The "ISDomainMaster" key can be found under "HKLM\System
\CurrentControlSet\Services\Browser\Parameters".

Don Christopher Kassay (Last update 10/12/2003):
After numerous attempts to resolve this problem by normal routine
steps, I finally decided to reinstall DNS on this Domain Server. After
the installation, I stopped the Browser Service and restarted it.
After the next Browser cycle to retrieve the list of Servers,
Workstations and printers, it retrieved them successfully and I have
not had any problem since.

EveningStar (Last update 10/12/2003):
Local Security Policy\Local Policy\Security Options controls the
RESTRICTANONYMOUS setting.
1 - "None. Rely on default permissions".
2 - "Do not allow enumeration of SAM accounts and shares".
3 - "No access without explicit anonymous permission".
Setting #3 causes this error, but on several Win2K Pro/Server peer-to-
peer networks where this error has appeared for many months there have
been no ill consequences. We ignore it.

Arkady Karasin
This event may occur on domain controller if it trying to use DNS that
not providing dynamic update. In our case it appeared with warning
8021 and it was stopped after we delete DNS of our internet provider
in TCP/IP configurations.

We had the same problem with a terminal server that gave this event.
At the same time we had a problem with the internal DNS on our domain
controller that had the role of master browser (W2K). After
reconfiguring the internal DNS on the master browser server the event
disappeared from the terminal server.

Adrian Grigorof
As per Microsoft, the backup browser will stop being a backup when it
tries and fails to retrieve the list more than 5 times. It will start
again after one hour. No action is needed unless you see this message
on several different computers. This could indicate problems with the
master browser.

This event may occur when File and Print Sharing is not installed or
the master browser has multiple network interfaces.
Having NetBEUI installed can also cause this error. (so unless you
need it, remove NetBEUI)

Anonymous
Check RESTRICTANONYMOUS registry setting. A value of 2 might cause
this problem. See M246261.

Tfahe
We have two NICs and one is not being used. I solved this error by
removing the bindings for the NIC we weren't using.

Rick van Vliet
If you only have Windows 2000 Domain controllers you can change the
domain to "native mode" using "Active Directory Domains and Trusts".
Don't do this if you still have windows NT4 domain controllers or
applications that require NT-like authentication (i.e. Exchange 5.5).

Syrinx
If the mcahine that is experiencing this problem is part of a Win2000
domain, then make sure that the Security Options (in Default Domain
Policy, computer Configuration, Windows Settings, Local Policies,
Security Options) "Additional Restrictions for Anonymous Connections
is set to either "None" or "Do not allow enumeration...". This will
make the same changes to the registry as per M246261, but seeing as
the computer is part of a domain that might have the setting of "No
access", every time the Group Policy is applied, the registry
modification made in M246261 will be changed back to "2".

Michael Easterly
This event occured after running NWLINK and TCP/IP on the same nic on
the PDC. M135404 provides a workaround.
