  • PC's still not populating Entire Network

    Hello everyone

    After posting this question about PC's not appearing in Entire Network, I received several helpful replies and was advised to install DHCP so that I could centrally manage any future changes to DNS settings on client machines.

    Well, I have made the changes. I have enabled NetBIOS over TCP, I have changed from static IP addressing to DHCP and have installed a WINS server. All DHCP assignments are through reservations.

    In the DHCP scope options I have the addresses set for DNS and WINS servers etc:



    Problem is, although NBT is set and the WINS server shows all the PC's, Entire Network is still empty.

    If anyone has any further ideas on what may be causing this and what the solution may be, I will be very grateful.

    The network comprises a single AD domain with two domain controllers. DNS, DHCP and WINS are all on one DC (192.168.0.2) with secondary DNS on the second DC (192.168.0.5). Everything is located on 192.168.0.xxx. There are only 30 clients. All clients are joined to the domain.

    Thanks!

    Here's an ipconfig /all from a client:
