  • Server not in My Network Places

    When I open my network places, I am not seeing my one of my Windows 2003 servers. Any Ideas on why this is happening? Any help would be appriciated.

    The funny thing is, I can browse the files etc... using the run command.

    If I remember correctly My Network places uses Netbios name resolution. If your server isn't configured to use Netbios then it wont appear within Network Places.

      NetBios was turned off. I turned it on and I still recieved this message.

        Is the Computer Browser service started on the server?

          Also, are you able to ping the IP of the server?
