براي Test كردن سرور هاي Browser  در شبكه Local و Remote مي توان از Browstat.exe اشتفاده كرد

اين Tool  را در آدرس زير مي توان پيدا كرد .

directory \Support\Tools on the Windows 2000 operating system CD.

براي چك كردن هر سيستم جديدي در شبكه بايد حداقل 45 دقيقه بعد از Boot شدن آن را Test كنيد .

Due to the time sensitivity of the browser service, wait 48 minutes after the server you are testing has booted before performing the following tests.

Tracing a Problem

The most frequent problem with the browser service is server names not replicating on browse lists across the network. The following example assumes that a client on one subnet cannot see a server located on another subnet in its browse list. By completing the sequence of commands described in the following steps, you can determine at which point a server missing from a browse list has stopped name replication. It is important that you understand the architecture of your network in order to perform a proper analysis.

For best results, run the following test procedures in the direction of propagation, starting from the subnet where the missing server is located and continuing through to the subnet where the client that cannot find the missing server is located.


If any of these steps prevent you from proceeding to the next step, verify that none of the browser servers that you have identified have a name conflict error. You can determine whether there is a name conflict by running the following command:

nbtstat n

If there is a name conflict, Nbtstat lists it in its Status column. If the DomainName <1d> or <1e> is in conflict, stop and restart the browser service on the computer in question.

This command can be run remotely by using the command line option –a.

Figures included with the following procedures use placeholders for various parts of the commands you need to use. Table I.4 describes these placeholders.


Placeholders Description
<Domain Name> The name of the domain
<Protocol> Identifies the transmission protocol.

Format: netbt_tcpip

<Network Adapter ID> Unique identifier for the computer's network adapter

Format: nn-nn-nn-nn-nn-nn where n represents a hexadecimal integer

<Master Browser> The name of the master browser
<Backup Browser> The name of the backup browser
<DMB> The name of the domain master browser. Because the domain master browser functionality resides on a PDC, the domain master browser is commonly referred to as "the PDC."
<Missing Server> The server that is missing from the browse list

Figure I.11 shows the direction of propagation.
