I have a 2TB MyBook Live on my home network. In the Windows logs of another PC on the same network, I am seeing a lot of repeated messages of the type <<The name “WORKGROUP :1d” could not be registered on the interface with IP address 192.168.1.xxx. The computer with the IP address 192.168.1.4 did not allow the name to be claimed by this computer.>>
192.168.1.4 is the IP address of the MBL. The workgroup is, obviously, WORKGROUP (original, huh?).
It looks as though the MBL is becoming the NetBIOS master browser, and grabbing the name “WORKGROUP :1d” accordingly, and then is not relinquishing the name later if/when it loses an election. Is this a known problem? Or have I misinterpreted what I’m seeing, and the problem lies elsewhere?
