Error 6118: ERROR_NO_BROWSER_SERVERS_FOUND

I got the error System error 6118 has occurred with message The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available when I try get the list of computer names in network using Net View command.


System error 6118 has occurred -The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available

After I have analyzed, found the following cause and fix/solution for the Error 6118 (ERROR_NO_BROWSER_SERVERS_FOUND ) from following link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/139910.

Cause of the Error 6118:

Your workgroup name is different than your domain name.

The NET VIEW command sends out a Status Query (0x03) to the client computer's workgroup name. Even if your client computer is not a member of a workgroup, the workgroup name is queried. If your client computer is a member of a domain, the domain name is queried. If your workgroup name is different than your domain name, the browse master never responds and the 6118 error appears.

Solution:

Edit the SYSTEM.INI file in the network directory (usually C:\NET), do NOT edit the Windows SYSTEM.INI file (usually in the C:\WINDOWS directory). In the [network] section you will find entries for "workgroup=" and "logondomain=." These entries should be the same, both using the domain name.
