Computer Browser
stand Jan-26-02 04:55 AM
Hi,

There is a conflict between Microsoft doc and Mark Minasi's book. Mark say a potential browser is the computer that has the registry key HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Browser\Parameter\MaintainServerList set to True but MS doc say set it to Auto. How to set a computer to become a potential browser?
How to set a computer to become a preferred browser?
Thank.
Stand

Potential browser and preferred browser are terms I am unfamiliar with. If you are talking about the Master Browser settings, mskb Q136712, Common Questions About Browsing with Windows at http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q136/7/12.asp+IsDomainMaster&hl=en applies:
“Under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE subtree…
· \SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Browser\Parameters\IsDomainMaster
o IsDomainMaster parameter information:
§ When set to 1, this parameter provides a priority boost to increase its likely hood of winning a master browser election. It does not allow the browse server to become the domain master browser. This value is a boolean value and can be any of the following: Yes/No, True/False, or 1/0.
o MaintainServerList:
§ When set to NO, the server is not a browse server.
§ When set to YES, the server becomes a browse server.
§ When set to AUTO, the server becomes a browse master if the master browser asks it do so. “
