3.3.5.10 Sending ResetState Frames

If the local master browser server receives a HostAnnouncement from a server with the SV_TYPE_BACKUP_BROWSER and SV_TYPE_POTENTIAL_BROWSER flags set and that is running a version less than 0x010f, the local master browser server SHOULD send a ResetStateRequest message with RESET_STATE_CLEAR_ALL set to that server.<54> For more details regarding ServerType flag values, see [MS-SRVS] section 2.2.2.7.

If the local master browser server discovers that there are too many backup browsers<55> the local master browser server SHOULD send a ResetStateRequest message with RESET_STATE_CLEAR_ALL set to a plurality of backup browsers to bring the number to the expected level.

When a backup browser receives the ResetStateRequest message with RESET_STATE_CLEAR_ALL set, it MUST transition from being a backup browser to simply a browser server and set Current Role to potential browser server. The server MUST disable advertising of the backup and master browser service as specified in [MS-SRVS] section 3.1.6.10, passing SV_TYPE_BACKUP_BROWSER and SV_TYPE_MASTER_BROWSER as the input parameters. When a server that is a master browser receives either a RESET_STATE_CLEAR_ALL or a RESET_STATE_STOP_MASTER ResetStateRequest message, it transitions to simply a browser server (that is, no longer a master or backup browser). When a server that is a master browser receives RESET_STATE_STOP ResetStateRequest, the message stops the browser services.<56>
