NT servers not seeing each other

By sysadmin ·
I am stumped on this one and know I'm missing something easy.

I have an existing peer-to-peer network that I am adding a new NT4 server to. Currently I have 3 NT4 servers running TCP/IP and NETBUI. They can see each other all the time perfectly.

I made a new install of NT4 on the new server with the same two protocols. It is in the same workgoup and subnet. All network properties are the same except one. The new server has SNMP installed whereas the old servers do not.

Also, the old servers are running service pack 3 and the new one is running service pack 6. Those are the only two differences.

Here is how I test it. I go to one old server, it's a test machine and run NT Explorer. On network neighborhood I can browse the other two servers and see their shared directories. When I click on the new server it ask me for a username and password. Why the difference? And the reason this will not work is because I'm trying to do a tape restore from one server to another and the connection is denied.

So what am I missing? Why is there a difference? And how do I get the old servers to see the new one just like they see each other?

1. Can it be pinged (either by IP address or name?)
2. Tried removing from and re-adding to workgroup?

I got it

By Murphy's Law I got the answer. I also asked in the Tech Q&A section. The problem was different admin passwords on the servers. I changed the password on the new server and all is fine now.
