2 MacMini on same LAN do not see each other

2 MacMini on same LAN do not see each other

I have 2 MacMini machines:

MacMini-1 OSX 10.9.4 and MacMini-2: OSX 10.9.4/Parallels 9

Both MacMinis are on same local Ethernet (CAT5) network, but do not see each other. There are Windows 7/8.1 PCs on same network which are visibile to MacMinis and can be accessed.  

Also, 'Macintosh HD' is not visible on MacMini-2: OSX 10.9.4/Parallels 9; OK on MacMini-1

What is preventing these from ocurring and how to fix?

MacMini-1 says 'System Preferences...Sharing...Computers on your local network can access you computer at: Baryon.local'. Where do I enter this on MacMini-2 and how to make it permanent?

On both Minis, in Finder, pull down the Finder Menu to "Preferences". Click on the SideBar Tab and make sure that "Connected Servers" is checked. Also check all four items under Devices. Then under the General Tab, check the top four check boxes.

Then under System Preferencs, go to the Sharing prefs. Make sure File sharing is turned on.  Add a shared folder and authorizations. Under the advanced tab, check both SMB and AFP Sharing.
