SBS server 2003 - remote desktop client list

Hi
I have installed SBS 2003 myslef (novice) for my medium size business - all seems to be ok - although when I attempt to test remote desktop - the only computer listed in the available list of options is the server itself. I have only added one computer so far to the domain - but expected this to be included as an option to access remote desktop this way.


Its an xp SP2 CLIENT

thanks for any tips

James, Its SBS.... lol

Have you run the CEIW ( Configure Internet and Email Wizard), its part of the server setup when you log onto to the SBS server.
This will automatically configure the policies etc that you need.

How did you add the work station to the domain? Through the set up client computers wizard? If you did it a different way, likelihood is that the work station is not in the right OU and group.

I think your second issue may be the way - I think I just logged it on through computer properties..I thought of this and then did try to reconnect using client computer wizard but it would not as It was already part of a/the domain......

How do I check correct OU and group?

thanks

The correct way would be to remove the pc from the domain. Rename the PC and then add it again as if it were a new PC but by following the SBS guides. Use the setup wizards.
This is a useful link that will help you get started.
