Question:

is there a way to "simulate" the workgroup feel... a way to browse computers on the domain by organizational unit....by a windows feature or other software?

My users aren't going to like being stuck in one giant workgroup.... and I don't see any other way for them to browse computers by organizational unit.

when I go into 'My Network Places' and then 'Entire Network' I have two options: Directory, and Microsoft Windows Network.

When I go into MS Windows Network, I'm browsing the whole domain in a flat list a la NT 4. When I go into 'Domain' I can browse by OU.

Weird... I don't get the "Directory" option.

Just "Microsoft Terminal Services", "Web Client Network", and "Microsoft Windows Network."

Anyone care to chime in on how to enable this other view?

Nevermind, Figured out why.

I am using Windows XP.

There is a workaround though.

Thanks!

Hmm didn't quite give me what I want though....

When you click on a computer you just get its info... you don't get to browse its shares.
