Network slow because of WINS


Case 1: Some users logon takes long time with Applying Computer Settings.

Resolution: The WINS in the DC has an issue and can't open it. Fixed it by re-removing the WINS and re-installed.


Case 2: The application users have a problem to process the batch.

Resolution: Find the Event ID 8021 and 8032 as shown below.


Event ID 8021: The browser service was unable to retrieve a list of servers from the browser master \\DC1 on the network \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{4EF55995-1E5C-4010-A0A9-95086559BB6E}.

Browser master: \\DC1
Network: \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{4EF55995-1E5C-4010-A0A9-95086559BB6E}

This event may be caused by a temporary loss of network connectivity. If this message appears again, verify that the server is still connected to the network. The return code is in the Data text box.


Event ID: 8032: The browser service has failed to retrieve the backup list too many times on transport \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{4EF55995-1E5C-4010-A0A9-95086559BB6E}. The backup browser is stopping.

The application uses NetBIOS name. If the WINS server an issue, the users will have problem to run the application.


Case 3: The secondary DC has a problem to access the WINS Manager.

Resolution: We find there is unknown host in WINS Record Owners.
