Message: A request has been submitted to promote the computer to backup when it is already a master browser.
   
Explanation

The computer is already at the highest level that it can reach. In the browser, computers are either client, potential, backup, or master, with client computers having the least power and master browsers having the most power. When a browser comes online, it announces itself to the master browser. The master browser asks a fraction of these browsers to become backup browsers. The master browser itself has received one of these requests.

   
User Action

Contact the person with administrative rights on your computer to verify that there is only one master browser and that browsing is functioning properly.
