Missing network computer icon at WinXP My Network Places.

By logee ·
We are currently running 3 servers - a win 2000 and (2) win 2003s. On the 2003 server we can see new computers that have been added to the domain in both active directory and My Network Places. On the Win 2003 servers I can see the new computers in active directory but not in My Network Places. We are running 140 XP machines under one domain and one subnet. I need to know how to make the Win. 2003 servers find new computers in My Network Places as the anti virus we use (Vexira from Cental Command)uses My Network Places to load new computers into their data base.

Where under My Network Places

by 1bn0 In reply to Missing network computer ...

My Network Places maintains a list of computer shares that you have accessed from your computer.

Explorer hides the "Entire Network" unless you do a display refresh. Then you will see entire network with the following tree.

My Network Places
-Entire Network
--Microsoft Terminal Services
--Microsoft Windows Network
---My DOMAIN/Active
----Computer 1
----Computer 2
----Computer 3
----COmputer x
--Web Client Network

The browsemasters computer list is NOT part of the basic My Computers" list

What machine is currently your browsemaster?

You either have an issue with where the browse list is being maninatined or you need to go backto your vendor for more information on how it"uses My Network Places to load new computers into their data base."
