Clients don't show up in RWW Client computer list
Posted on 2008-11-14
I recently set up a windows SBS 2003 R2 server with 5 clients. I enabled the Remote access and VPN. On some of the client machines, I got an error when trying to use the //SERVERNAME/ConnectComputer script when connecting the client workstations (The error said I had another connection to the server, but I did not). Anyway, I set up the clients manually. However, only the server shows up in the list of Server Computers in the RWW Connect to Computer menu, and one client shows up in the Client Computers in the RWW Connect to Computer menu. I can remotely connect and control the server, but the single client that shows gives me an error when I try to connect, but it is a laptop with the top closed, and is probably hibernating. So, question is, how do I get the other clients to show up on the list?
I am using DHCP from the SBS Server and DNS, as well. The clients can join the domain and use the resources of the server, email is working, etc. The client computers are listed in the Advanced Management/Active Directory Users and Computers/domain.local/MyBusiness/Computers/SBSComputers, and I have manually set Dial-In to Allow Access (instead of the Control access throguth Remote Access Policy).
Any ideas what I am missing or what to check?
I have set this up sucessfully on several oter
