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

Windows 7 Pro works just fine with Server 2012 R2. For the one computer that has issues, run TCP/IP Reset and DNS Flush

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator
Then  netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
Also, ipconfig /flushdns followed by net stop dnscache followed by net start dnscache
Then restart the computer

Then in Advanced Network Sharing, make sure Network Discovery and File / Print are both ON and make sure Homegroup is ON.

After doing the above, disjoin the computer from the domain, restart and re-add it to the domain.
