Running a Windows Server 2003 Standard, as a Domain Controller.
IP address Subnet Mask

Server is connected to a router, so are some other PCs that are NOT part of the domain. However, all the PCs are on the same subnet.

When running the Net View command from a non-domain client PC, I do not see the server, but I see the other non-domain PCs.

Why would this happen?

    Accepted Solution

    Is it *only* the server that you cannot see in the browse list?  Is your non-domain PC part of a workgroup that is named the same as the domain legacy name?

    Have you tried 'net view /DOMAIN:<your domain name>' ?

    It is only the server I cannot see.
    The non-domain PCs are part of a workgroup with a different name than the domain.

    I have not tried 'net view /DOMAIN:....' yet, will do so. Should the browse list not show all entities on the subnet?
