Cannot see my computer in the domain
Posted on 2003-03-11
From anywhere in the domain I cannot see my station. Yes, File and print services is on. The machine i am running is a winxp (sp1), the pdc is an nt4 (sp6a) server. According to the Server Manager in the PDC my station is greyed out. I can double click on it and it will show the properties for the my computer. But under the computer type it states that it is a "Windows NT Workstation or Server". Before it would show up as a "Windows NT 5.1 Workstation". I really don't know what the deal is. I usually try to find my own answers instead of going to a board. But im stuck!
I can ping other computers and my own using the ip address and netbios names.
I can access any resource on the network (shared folders, network drives, print and file services).
I can access any printer (if that makes a difference).
I took the computer out of the domain and into a workgroup, then from a workgroup back to the domain. (this usually takes care of these problems, but it didn't in this case).
