Enable network mapping on client machines

Posted on 2010-11-26

I have a network running windows 2008 R2 Active Directory and 25 client computers. When any of the clients try to browse the Network Map they cannot see any of the computers and get the error message:

"Network mapping is disabled by default on domain networks. Your network administrator can use Group Policy to enable mapping."

How do I made this change on the server and push it to all the client? Where is this setting on the server???

Are you the domain administrator? Do you actually have Domain based Group Policy deployed??

Under administrative tools i see group policy management. Active directory users and computers are also under administrative tools.
