I am not sure does it have anything with domain since I use server in 

2 things are strange also. First is that I have one test server with 
almost the same configuration and hardware on network, and it works 
fine. I upgraded it prior to this one.

And second is that server which is not responding sometimes is being 
elected for master browser. Other computer names are resolved properly, 
except it is not responding, since its name cannot be resolved.
