SBS2008 Server on a 1G network doesn't show on the network on all devices. All other computers, WIN7, WIN10, and 2012 Server Standard show all computers minus SBS2008. Any help why the SBS2008 doesn't show would be helpful. There aren't any login issues or DNS problems I'm aware of.

You are able to ping it from any other pc by name and IP, right?
If yes did you setup in network sharing this server to be visible for other machines?

I assume you are talking about when you browse to Network in Explorer?
I've seen switches cause these issues from time to time.
I usually reboot them and voila,missing devices show up.

Enable the Windows 2008 R2 Server network identifier. The following services are required:
DNS client, function search resource publishing, SSDP search, UPnP device host.

Sorry, these are the terms from a German server.

@ reredok, doesn't the Windows 2008 R2 Server network identifier provide access to old NT4 domains?
