I recently added another domain controller to a network and transferred the masters to make it the primary domain controller (replaced a 2008 R2 DC with 2012 R2 DC) - all seems fine with AD and 8 other computers, but 1 computer will not browse the new 2012 server anymore, it works fine to the old 2008 server and all the other machines see both just fine.  I tried messing with SMB and disabling SMB2 on laptop but still nothing.  DNS is running on new server and DNS1 of laptop is pointing to new server as well
