Recently we upgraded our DCs to Server 08, the computer browser service is working fine however now when the net view command is used only the computer names appear nothing shows in the remarks column, (where you should find the computer description)
Do I have to have WINS running on my PDC to enable me to see Remarks within Net view??
Thanks
