Cannot see servers on network

We have several virtual server 2008's running under Hyper-V.  All the Win 7 workstations can see each other on the network,  but the hyper-v server along with the virtual servers cannot be seen under Network.  I can ping the servers and they are resolved using DNS. We can also map network drives.  How can we get to see the servers on the network?

Looking at the network for computers is the old style of doing things. You can only browse for computers on your local IP subnet. Normally you would connect to servers by just going \\servername . If your servers are on a different subnet you can't browse and see them unless you run the legacy WINS service on a server and configure everything to use WINS.

They are all on the same subnet.

Make sure NetBios over TCP\IP is enabled.

Enable Computer Browser services
