All of a suddent this morning I noticed that all but a couple of my workstations are missing from my Network Places but my servers are appearing there.  In Network Places as of a day or two ago all servers and all workstations were being displayed normally and to my knowledge nothing has changes.

I checked in my DNS forward lookup zones that all of the workstations are listed with name and ip address as well they are in the reverse lookup zone as well. I can ping the workstations by ip or by name and I can navigate to them in a my computer window window by name or ip address.

I'm not sure where the disconnect is... could anyone provide a starting place?

Thanks in advance

This problem has been resolved by restarting NetBIOS on our primary and secondary Domain Controllers. Still not certain why this problem occured in the first place though.
