Why is one Windows Server listed as a client?

I have 3 servers, and the domain controller is using Windows SBS 2008.  In the Windows SBS Console, under the "Network" tab, it shows a list of all the computers on the network, separated into "Servers" and "Clients".  But one of my servers, running Windows Server 2003, shows up under "Clients" instead of "Servers".  If I open that computer's properties in that view, it even says it's running Windows Server 2003.

Any idea how Windows SBS Console tries to tell what is a server vs. a client?  Any idea how to fix this?

I would say that your 2003 Server is under the SBSClients OU in AD and needs to be placed in the SBSServers OU.  The SBSServer should always remain in the Domain Controllers OU.

Hope this helps.
