My server desappeared

By cuban_titanic ·
I have a Server (NT4) that was configured initialy using NetBEUI and TCP/IP. Now we have 100 Pcs using that server and we want to use TCP/IP as a main protocol. As soon as we uninstall NETBEUI the server desappear from the browsing list. The TCP/IP address is properly configured to the same net as all others pcs.
What can I do to get the server name back to the browsing List?

The trick:
HKLM\\system\currencontrolset\services\lanmanserver\parameters Hidden=0 does not work.

You can use nbtstat -R at a command prompt so that it will register itself with WINS. Also if you using static addressing, just double-check to make sure that the correct WINS address is entered in under the network properties of the server in question. Hope this helps..........

We tried the nbtstat and it did not help us. And the WINS address is correct.

Remove the server from the domain (change to a workgroup) Then join the domain again so that it re registers.

This may sound silly, but you should ensure the PDC of the domain where the workstations are joined has a correct WINS address defined. Also ensure that the server you want in the browse list is registering in WINS. The PDC is the domain master browser and may provide some limited WINS information in the browse list.
