Server not visible when browsingLocked
This problem may have a simple answer, but I am not able to find the solution.
We have a Win2k domain, 2 DC’s with AD. It is in mixed mode with 3 NT4 BDC’s. There are approximately 350 workstations (Win2k Pro and NT4 Workstation), and 50 servers. The entire environment is a multiple domain location, but this problem domain only has one trust relationship. The two DC’s have DNS and WINS installed.
There is one win2k member server (not a DC) which has many shares and most of our workers access these shares for document storage. This server is not a print server. Norton AV Ent. Server is installed. No other applications are installed.
This particular server is NOT visible when browsing the network neighborhood. I know that browsing is not needed, but many of the users only know of this way to access the server. We have stopped and restarted the browsing service, net logon service, and bounced the box. Nothing works to make this server visible in the neighborhood. IT and users can do a search for the server and find it. When opened, all shares are visible. However users are complaining that they cannot find the server to access their files. Education of users is not an optionat this point.
This server also has WINS installed however it is not able to find itself as a wins server.
Any ideas and any help would be appreciated. Thanks
