One of the domain member server is not listed under My Network Places\Entire Network\%My Domain%

One of the domain member server  which I recently added to my domain is not listed under <<My Network Places\Entire Network\%My Domain%>>
All of the other domain members including the workstations and servers are listed. Only one server (Windows 2003 w/SP2) is missing!
When I checked <<My Network Places\Entire Network\%My Domain%>> on that missing server, I noticed that none of the other domain member servers and computers are listed.

This indicates an error with the computer browser service.  Try restarting the service, check your WINS server for issues (if applicable), and check the event log on the new server for errors.  Shouldn't be of any real concern as it's not going to cause any issues...unless your users can't figure out how to get to it.  Teach them \\servername.

Is the new member server on a different subnet on the network?  If so, you won't see it unless you're running WINS in your environment.  WINS isn't necessary in AD unless you want to browse multiple subnets in the manner you are.

1. WINS is not used in our environment.
2. Via UNC naming like \\MyServer I can see all shares on that server
3. New member server is not on a different subnet.
4. I did re-start on Computer Browser Service but nothing changed!
Check out some of these links for troubleshooting:


As I mentioned earlier, it's not going to cause any real technical issues.
