You'll have to post a complete IPCONFIG /ALL from both the server and a workstation in order to diagnose this.

I don't think you figured it out... the firewall SHOULD be enabled, but it's managed by Group Policy.  As I remarked in your other question, you don't have your workstations joined to the network properly or this wouldn't have happened.

ok jeff..

this was a quickly assembled partial test environment so i think they may have been things missed..

I am doing this process in about 2-3 hours

I am currently backing up VM's and reinstating on another machine as fallback.

I am will following your bkup document Jeff as it seems really good and i did do this before with my test environment and bar my hiccups worked quite well.. Again due to being Friday bkup only being successful on Monday I WILL have defo rushed the build for sure.

Thanks for all your help.

I'm going to award you the points and continue any further convos requests in my other thread..

Thanks for all your help thus far Jeff... you DESERVE these...

Thanks
