Can ping IP and Name but cannot browse server, why?

By ddemuth78 ·
I have a terminal server on my network that, upon occasion, stop being able to browse to a database server that's on the same physical network (but not a domain member). I can ping the DS from the TS using both the IP and the name but still cannot browse or connect. Restarting the TS resolves the issue. I check the services before restarting and everything automatic is running. The stands out in the event viewer to me that could be causing the issue. Any thoughts?

Hi sounds like the ts service is stopping. or maybe the NIc is going to sleep, you may want to confirm the networkcard doesnt have any enrgysaving/sleep mode items enabled.

Session timeout?

Kicked off by other connections to the DB? Or other connections to the TS?

You wouldn't be getting a "master browser" error anywhere, would you?

Would a master browser error be found in the Event Log under System?

Check elections

Check event logs on all servers to see how frequently browser elections are occurring. Providing you have enough servers that are always on, you may want to manually configure them as your master and backup browsers and eliminate all other machines from browser elections.

Also, is there any particular reason that the DS is not in the domain?

The DS is managed and leased through a third party.
