Server not showing up in network neighborhood

Our server is not showing up in the network neighborhood for other computers to browse. How can I get it back?

IIRC NetHood relies on a master browser to win a random election to become the master browser and such, its not really a reliable way to find objects and is typically used in workgroup envoronments, reboots can usualy get computers back on the list.

IMO consider not using at all and map paths to where you need to go.

I do map everything. I NEVER use it. The reason I'm concerned about this, as another open question I have, we've added a copier/scanner which has capabilities to scan to network folders. I am not able to scan to our server's network folder (although I  can to computers on the domain) and the Sharp tech cllaims it's because we can't see it in the network neighborhood.

So a server restart is the only way to get it back in the neighborhood?
