Computer Browsing across subnets Server 2012
Posted on 2016-10-20
Looking for some guidance on the age-old problem of computers seeing all other computers across a routed network.
I have on subnet "A" a 2012 server that is the Domain Controller.
There is another Domain controller on Subnet "A" (2008 r2).
On Subnet "B" I have a Domain controller as well. I n Active directory sites I set up subnet "B" so each DC knows about each other's subnets.
I Turned on computer browsing on all DC's
I set up DNS with both subnet sand both forward and reverse zones are working fine. You can ping, Map drives, Login and everything you would expect between the subnets, you just cant see the other subnets computers.
When you click on network on Subnet "A" you only see computers on subnet "A" and the Same for Subnet "B"
I am trying NOT to use LMHOSTS or WINS if possible.
What else am I Missing here? Is there a way to do this with AD and Not use WINS?
Any assistance is appreciated.
