(I have just recently taken over support for this site, so there may be a bit of history/upgrades I don't know about)

Server 2012, all client PCs are Win 7. Wanting to setup Anywhere Access. It works fine for two of the computers/users in the office. The remainder of the computers (about 8 or so) do not appear in the 'Computer Access' list (only the two working ones do).

I have disconnected and rejoined the computers to the domain. I have removed the AV program. I have ensured that the 'less secure' Remote Desktop option has been turned on. I can ping the PCs, I can manually/directly RDP to them, and they appear in the Network browse on the server.

I need to find out why the other computers are not appearing in the list.

No need for "less secure" and ....for reasons that should be obvious in that statement, I wouldn't recommend it.

How did you rejoin these computers to the domain? Did you do so manually (the most common mistake with Essentials) or did you use the /connect wizard? Are the computers visible in the *essentials* specific dashboard?

That was it (the wizard). For future lookups of this question, all info can be found here:

Or, if no longer a valid link, search for "connect wizard server 2012"
