Hi,

A few weeks ago a two appleshare servers disappeared from one of the zones
on the campus network. I can still see the zone and a laserwriter print
spooler in it, however  when I select appleshare the two servers are
nowhere to be found.  Within the zone they are present, and I can see
servers and printers outside the zone from within the zone without
problems.

I was wondering if anyone has experienced similar problems and might have
an idea what's going in or what else I can do to troubleshoot this?

Thanks,

sounds like the servers have been misconfigured.

Commented:
it may be that routers between departments have disallowed Appleshare servers from broadcasting their services outside of its zone.
