  • Computer Icon Missing in the list of domain computer

    Hello everyone!

    I have small annoying problem with missing computer icon under the Entire Network> Microsoft Windows Network> Domain>

    the missing computer is windows server 2003 r2 sp2 x64
    domain is sbs2003 sp2

    tried to readd this computer to domain, didn't work.

    the computer appears in the AD as it supposed to.

    any ideas?

    Thank you!

    never seen something like that on a domain, but I'll take a swing at this one anyways...

    Can you reach the machine using \\COMPUTERNAME or using the FQDN?
    Can you ping the machine using netbios name?
    Do you use DHCP to assign addresses or do you use static addressing?

      Everything is accesible through \\COMPUTERNAME and FQDN, ping exist and i experience no limits in using the computer which is our main storage server and is used by almost all users and has multiple shared folders etc. It is configured by DHCP, and it is seen in the address leases on the domain.

        I would think this is a Master Browser issue. You can force an election by restarting the browser service... When there is an issue with the master browser or the master browser is offline, the machines name doesn't appear in network places but the machine itself remains accessible...

        You'll find more information here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/188305 ...
        Hopefully that will resolve your issue, otherwise hold on for an answer from the guru's here

            I am curious about the resolution; Did the net config command resolve your issue?
