Win7 Clients see new server shares , XP clients do not???

We have replaced a failed 2008 R1 server with a new 2008 R2 Server.

The name, IP and share names are the same in a Workgroup (Not a domain)
Win 7 clients see all 9 shares
XP clients see "shared" with 2 blue arrows on the icon

Thats it???
on the XP clients if i check by ip I can see shares \\192.168.1.2

Please help

Is the new server named the same as the old?  If so, it might be an issue with stored user credentials.  Never had this exact issue, but very similar with some windows 7 machines in a similar situation.

That article should walk you thru on how to delete those, may be a good starting point.

No go - only by IP can I see the shares not by name

Disable every firewall you can find and try again?  Any 3rd party firewall soft loaded on any of these machines?

The clients were fine with the previous server.  Only the server has been replaced using the same exact Netbios name, ip and shares.

Also, can you post an ipconfig /all output of your server?

Right, but it's not the same machine.  Some firewall/av soft will see that as an attempt to spoof or poison the network and will block it which is why I was curious what's running on the network.

firewall turned off on new server... no av yet just got it online

Oh my gosh... I don't know why I overlooked this.  It's because Offline Files are enabled on the XP machines more than likely.  And since the server is named the same, it's thinking it's still trying to connect and cache the files.  Those "two blue arrows" you speak of gave it away.  Try disabling offline files on the XP machines and try again.
