Error Message: The Browser Was Unable to Retrieve a List of Domains From the Browser Master...

This article was previously published under Q227419
In a complete workgroup environment, you may receive the following error message in Event Viewer:
The browser was unable to retrieve a list of domains from the browser master \\server on the network \Device\Nbf_device number. The data is the error code.
This behavior occurs because the Browser service is attempting to create a list of computers that are on your network. If the service is unable to find a master browser, this error message is displayed in the event log.
This behavior is by design.
