Entire Network browser issue on domain

By bradq ·
Hi, we are having network browsing issues on our domain. Office A in one city shows the computers on the network here. Office B in another city sees its computers on the network there. There is a link between offices and both can ping/browse to a computer manually by name.

What do we need to do to make all the computers in both offices show up combined at each office in "Entire Network" rather than just seeing the computers in our own city?

Another related problem is on occasion Office A will stop showing it's computers and show the computers in Office B in "Entire Network".

Can both of these be fixed by changing something?

is this an Active Directory network? if so, is one of the offices a Site. If not Active Directory, what is the structure?

If Active Directory, all computers within the domain should be viewable in My Network Places unless specifically hidden or there are no shares on those computers. All should be searchable within Active Directory.

Yes, it is an AD network and both of the offices are sites. Office A has two servers in it's site and Office B has one.

The issue is that computers that show up in the Entire Network are very intermittant. Sometimes it shows only Office A, sometimes Office A and B, and sometimes just Office B. This is frustrating people in Office A when they browse the network and only see the Office B computers.
