Hello,

      I have windows 2003 Server as DC. I can't see my server in the network places, But I can browse the server through UNC.

I checked the Computer Browser service and its running.


Can someone please shred a light on this..


Thanks in advance

can you see the server if you type the IP address on windows explorer? some times it takes accessing the server more than once in order to be added to your network places. you can always map it

I think it has been set to "resolved by name server". Go to Advanced TCP/IP settings WINS tab, and put the DNS server IP address in it. It should work.
