Network browsing issues
Posted on 2003-02-21
I installed a SBS2000 in the network. This is a completely new domain. I have implemented AD on this DC. There are also 2 more W2K standalone servers in the network. The environment is a mix of W2k Pro , NT4 and Win98 workstations. The problem is that I can't map network drives from NT4 wks by using FQDN. I can map the drives by specifying \\server ip address\sharename. Also whenever I hit network neighborhood it takes a while (about 5 min) to display network PC-s ( I guess this is related to the aforementioned issue).Same thing when trying to install network printers. I do not have this problem with w2k pro and win 98. I tried reconfiguring the network on one of the nt4 wks by removing the NIC and reinstalling network and also SP6 but no success.
What could be the problem here ?
