I have added a number of Windows 7 Pro x64 bit machines to a SBS2008 Windows Network, they work and function fine and have access to all the network resources, however, when looking to remote into the system they do not appear on the network. After looking into the issue I have found that there are no DNS records matching the PC names. I need to be able to remote into this machine from time to time and this is preventing me access.

Hi,

Did you tried an "ipconfig /register" on one of the client?

Can you verify that Windows Firewall is disabled for domain networks on these machines?

Can you RDP by IP Address?

Oh just saw I made a typo it's ipconfig /registerdns^^

Also could be a good idea to flush the dns on the client before registering it (ipconfig /flushdns)

it actually was not a dns registration issue, i used the registerdns but there were other settings denying remote access that also had to be resolved.
