New W2003SBS client PC not showing in Server Management window

My colleague added an XP SP3 client to our W2003 SBS Domain.

A while later it was noticed that it no longer showed up in the Server management window.

The client was removed and re-added and was then in the list.

Today it has gone again.

The user seems to have full use so it appears to be on the domain.

A second new client appears OK.

Any thoughts as to why this is?

does it have all the correct IP parameters, WINS, DNS, correct gateway.

Check Server and Client event logs

Has stayed on the domain since last addition without any further work.

Thanks for the suggestions hanccocka but no investigation needed after all.
