2 Strange Domain Issues: Net View and Find Printers... related?


Somewhat eXPerienced

Hey guys,

Originally I was going to make a post based on one of the issues we are experiencing, which is a net view problem. Net View to me is a great tool because it allows me to see all of the computers on the domain in one shot, in case I wasn't sure who uses what computer and so forth (Computers are physically named by department_serial#... not user). We have two off-site locations which are connected via static VPN to this building, and are members of the domain.

Recently, within the past week (no known changes have been made), the computers at those two sites are not showing up in the net view. I can still connect to them via RDP and everything, but I just don't see the listing in net view. What controls that listing and what could possibly happen?

A possibly related issue: I was on my bosses laptop today whom I believe is joined to the domain. If he is joined to the domain, I was attempting to find the plethora of network printers we have on the servers... however none were showing up. What would also cause that?

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
