Explanation

The subnet mask of the Windows 2000 client computer is incorrect or is different from the primary domain controller. The client computer has attempted to promote itself to the master browser of the subnet and has failed because only one computer in a domain can be running as the master browser.

   
User Action

Change the TCP/IP protocol configuration to the correct subnet mask.
