Windows server 2008 R2 not seen

    Question

  • I have a windows R2 server that is not seen on the network. It is in the domain and is not restricted in any way that I can see. When viewing the entire network all servers show but this one. Any Ideas??

  • Hello,

    as Marcin mentioned, the computer browser must be started, which is disabled by default since the start from Windows server 2008, also NetBios over TCP/IP on the NIC must be enabled.

    Network discovery, also new within Windows server 2008 and higher, set to enabled my help.

    Beside this the WINS server can be used if network browsing over multiple subnets is required.

  • If everything doesn't work, try updating the NIC drivers & make sure server is running with latest service pack & patches.
