Hello Experts,

I’m running Windows Server 2012 Essentials in an office with 10 Windows 7 Pro PCs.  We have three users that regularly work remotely by accessing the remote.mycompany.com and then remote into their workstations.  When a user would hit the remote.mycompany.com site, they would see a list of computers that they could remote in too.  Last Friday the user that typically uses PC3 tried installing a new program that messed everything up.  On Saturday, I did a system restore of PC3.  The PC3 system restore went fine, but when it came back up I received a message stating that trust between the domain and the PC did not exist.  I deleted the computer account for PC3 in Active Directory, reinstalled the client software that allows me to re-add the PC to the domain and re-add it.  The PC was added back to the domain without any issues.  I verified functionality and access to everything on the server.  My issue is now when I access remote.mycompany.com and see the list of PCs (available to access remotely) on my domain, I see PC3 twice.  I can click on either of the PC3s in the list and get to PC3, but I only want to see it once in the list.  Where do I edit this list at?

Also, PC3 is now showing offline all the time.  Where do I change this to accurately reflect the status of that PC.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Nick

Does the computer also show up twice within the SBS Console? Look in Network > Computers tab
