Got a windows 8 pro pc running hyper-v server. Have configured 2 virtual machines both running windows 2000 advanced server. Both are running fine except one of them wont show on the local network. To confirm:
- I can ping ip address from another pc
- I can ping computer name  from another pc
- I cannot access any shares including \\192.168.0.*\share or \\servername\share
- The server itself can see network, go on internet, can be accessed for website hosting and email purposes.

Thoughts on a postcard please...................

ps. I have restarted router, switch and Virtual Machine as it did clash domains originally when changing over from physical machine to virtual machine, to confirm physical machine now unplugged from network.

Waw man, Windows Server 2000 AS is pretty old!

If you are able to ping the server by its IP address and computer name, that means it has network connectivity.

You should check the local permissions and security policies on the server. Is it part of a domain? Does it allow access from network and for which users (there is security policy that could block it)?
