Can not expand domain in "Map Network Drive" window.

Posted on 2008-11-05
Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I recently added a new server to the domain. When I log in as a domain administrator to this server, it runs a script and successfully maps two drivers from other servers, but when I try to manually add one more drive it does not expand domain under "Map Network Drive" window.

Any idea?

Thank you.

    Assisted Solution

    If this is your only W2003 Server, it tries to be the Domain Browser for the complete domain. But that works only if the server has enough time (hours) to collect all broadcasts of domain members. You could try to stop/disable the Browser service, as this will force an other server to be Master Browser.

    I found the problem. It needed enabling NetBIOS from Network Connections-TCP/IP Properties-Advanced settings.

    Thank you.
