I would like to know why when launching Windows Explorer on one server it displays a number of networked (same domain) computer objects under 'Network' in the lefthand pane, and on another server I get a different list of computer objects in Windows Explorer (under 'Network' when clicked).

There is 1 File server I am trying to see in Windows Explorer on a PC/Server and cannot, how do I make it visible/listed?

Do you see the same subnet objects under the network. is the file server in the same subnet of the server where you are looking from windows explorer-> network

Are you able to access  \\servername\share in the run or map as drive the file server share.

I've requested that this question be deleted for the following reason:

I have resolved this.
The 2 servers were in different geographical locations and therefore on different subnets so I have vmotioned the troubled server to the same site which has resolved my issue.
Thank you for your support.

I mentioned the same in my comment. why you are deleting the request instead of giving points to me.
