Hello,

I am starting a new domain with server 2008. I have a test environment now with one computer and the server in a domain. When I click on "My network places", and then "Entire network", and then "Microsoft Windows Network", and then "Network Name" there is no computers listed. Usually in past experiences the actual server is listed there and it is nowhere to be seen with a message that says "the domain is not accessible. you might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions."

What am I missing???

is the server file or printer sharing.  This needs to be enabled.
Go to computer management and add these roles.  
When enabled, from the computer, click start, run and \\xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx ip of server and you should see any shared services available.  Then try network neighbourhood again

You need to make sure the Computer Browser service is started on the DC and Netbios over TCP\IP is enabled in the TCP\IP settings of the DC as well.

Disable all NICs except for one in the DC as well.
