Hi and thanks for your help!

Im at the last step of a migration before i get rid of the old server.

The computers do not show under "Network" in the Windows SBS Console. The 2 servers are there.

The computers are listed in the "Updates" section of the Console and they show up in RWW.

Thanks again, Aaron

Look in Active Directory Users and Computers on the SBS 2008 server?  Are the workstations located in the MyBusiness > SBSComputers OU?

Nope, the are in "computers" but not in SBSComputers or console

I ran http://connect on 2 computers, completed, rebooted and they don't show up.

Ran the fix network wizard:

DNS is using a DNS Forwarder
A CNAME record is missing

You can manually move them them to the correct OU and they should after 24 hours (if not sooner) show up in the console
