search funtion issue

Hello all,

I have bilbo here in the Baltimore office with a minor problem quickly reaching the boiling point. She cannot use the search function to find items on a network drive in Annapolis. I can log onto her laptop and search the drive just fine, she logs back on and no go. I can’t find any difference with the preferences when this happens. Would anyone have an opinion on this?

an she use ip address to  \\192.168.1.100  to browse instead of using  \\fileserver2\   ??   Possibly a wins issue.  Verify that she has the same Wins address as you do, and also verify that she has netbios installed on her PC

Hello all,

Thanks to everyone for the responses. The main problem is resolved. And the winners were Brad and John. I renamed Dianne’s profile on her machine, had her log back on and recreate. This solved the search problem, now comes the task of restoring all of the little user nuances. Favorites, shortcuts, and so forth. But the search is on.

Thanks again

This eems to have done it, but I would have thought there would be a far easier solution. They did try all the above and it did not seem to do it.
