Not all computers show up in Windows Explorer: Entire Network\Domain\
Posted on 2006-11-27
For whatever reason, I can't see the majority of my organization's computers and servers in "entire network". If I go there, via My Network Places, and double click on my Windows AD domain I get 5 (out 35 or so) computers. By the way, all 5 of those computers are off-site machines. What gives?
If I, from my desktop, search the domain for missing computers they don't show up. If I type in a UNC name in the Windows Explorer address bar, I can get to any machine on the network.
I need this to work correctly so that my desktop management software will work properly.
I'm running all WinXP machines with Win2k3 servers.
1 AD domain controller + file server box
1 Exchange server box
1 Sharepoint Portal + Print Server + RAS server box
