Have a mixture of XP and Windows 7 machines connected to a SBS2008 RS server. Since yesterday morning the XP machines cannot see the SBS server. All other machines show up on the "Entire Network" but not the server.

There is no problem with the W7 machines.

No changes were made to the server at the time of problem

All the clients are connected via a workgroup. The XP machines can see all the workgroup devices except the server. The W7 machines show the server in the workgroup

What do you mean all clients are connected via a workgroup?  Do you mean a DOMAIN?  Because those two things are different, and SBS environments definitely are DOMAINS.

Please run the following command on both an XP workstation and your server:

IPCONFIG /ALL

Then post the full results here.

Thanks.

Jeffrey, your question got me thinking and, having questioned the client, discovered that some changes had been made to the router and they were messing up the IP range. Corrected and all working
