My network places access

Posted on 2007-03-28
Last Modified: 2010-03-18
I run a small domain with one server running server 2003 sp1 and 35 clients. On a small number of the clients when I click on My Network Places it takes the domain sever several seconds to find the domain. When I eventually see the domain network icon i cannot list all the clients in the domain as I am greeted with the message "the domain is not accessable. You might not have sufficient privialges to use this network recourse......". This is potty, I log on with full administrator rights and why should it happen on some of the pc's and not other's?

Browsing (in the Network Places realm) is a function of NetBIOS.  If NetBIOS over TCP/IP is not enabled on the NIC then you won't get anything.

You also need the NetBIOS helper service running too.

Unless those permissions were manually changed, the default is fine.

My user profile has all adminstration rights available. The COMPUTER PERMISSIONS is for all PC. NetBIOS over TCP/IP is set fro all the PC also.
