Browsing network shares in Network Places is inconsistent.
Posted on 2011-09-28
Certain people are not able to browse the network for a handful of servers and PCs. It seems to be a sporadic issue. It does not appear to matter which version of windows we are on. I have 7, others have vista or XP and we all can’t see a few servers and other various computers. There are different VLANs, not all are on the same VLAN. They are all joined to the domain and have antivirus and firewalls are disabled.
My setup is:
Windows 7 with up to date forefront with firewall turned off. We can access them by using a direct path (i.e. //servername/path). This has happened in the past but it seemed to go away.
