How to identify workgroup machines on the network.

Most computers on my network are on the domain. I need to identify the few computers that are in one workgroup or another. Is there an easy way to do this?

if you know the workgroup names you can use the command:-
net view /domain:workgroup
at the command prompt where workgroup is the name of uyour workgroup

Hope this helps

Go to My Network Places in Explorer, Entire Network, then Microsoft Windows Network, should show all domains and workgroups that are connected on the network.

As far as I know not without going to each machine and checking their Computer name tab (right click My Computer).  Other way is to pull the patch cable and refreshing the network neighbourhood and seeing which one drops - might get a few unhappy users ;).

When you go round each machine I would label the box with its computer name so that it will be easier to trace troubled PCs in the future.

Ahh I think I misunderstood your question.  I thought you wanted to physically identify them.

Dameware works great in scanning your network and grouping the workstations based on Domain & workgroup.

It's a remote control application.
