Network Browsing Trouble

By Hawk77 ·
Here's a good one. A little backround, we are running a single domain, single segment TCP/IP LAN between two buildings using two switches linked via fiber optic modules (300 yards between the switches). We are using DHCP located in building "A" which provides the clients with IP, DNS, and WINNS server info. We have a Windows 2000 DC on both ends of the LAN with approx 50 Win98 workstations in each building. Building "A" houses the DC running as the Domain Master Browser along with a second W2K file server as a Backup Browser, in building two, the second DC is also running as a Backup Browser. I confirmed this utilizing the "Browstat" utility. Heres the problem, only the workstations in building "A" are showing up in the domains browse list. No workstations in building "B" are showing up in the list (BTW, all servers in both buildings are listed in the browse list). I have gone as far as moving a workstation from one building to the other without making any configuration changes, if its in building "A" it shows in the browse list, if it's in building "b" it doesn't. All workstations are listed in both the DNS and WINNS data bases and have no trouble accessing resources in either building. Any Ideas?
