I just got an idea.

This week I have been strugling with an plain
Wintel network and an midsize company.


Clients drive mappings is lost/broken after some time.


Master browser problems
Event id 8003
(Win2k, Sp2)

Could there be an link here ?

nmbd not running, win9x client drive mapping problems

 -> and

wintel network, win9x client drive mapping not
working as master browser not working correctly ?

Sorry for the off topic,
but it might bring some lights on the subject of "nmbd or not" ?

Best Regards
