Can't see all computers in domain

Recommended Posts

WHS_Refugee

I have a W7 PC (a machine that acts as a HTPC), and I can only see two other computers on my network - the server, and a Vista PC that isn't a member of the domain.  This machine had been a member of a homegroup, and I forgot to leave the homegroup when I ran the connector.  So, I left the homegroup, and I've unjoined it from the domain (I also deleted its computer account in ADUC on the server).  I've rejoined the domain, but I can still only see the server and the Vista machine.  I can't see other W7 machines in the domain, and I can't even ping them, even with the IP address.  Help!

 

I do have the server's IP address set as the first DNS address.

 

Also, how do you uninstall the Connector?  I don't see it in Control Panel / Programs and Features.

Okay, I think I figured it out - I had network discovery and file sharing turned off on everything.  It's on now, and I can see and ping the other computers.

Glad you found that little gem (Network Discovery).

 

Also, PING has nothing to do with DNS - DNS is only used to find IP addresses. What I mean is, problems with DNS won't affect the ability to PING computers.

Still, how do you uninstall the Connector software, since it isn't in Control Panel / Programs and Features.

Have you checked in the "Installed Updates"  section?

Is this the Essentials Connector? If so, it should be in Programs and Features. Look near the bottom for "Windows.....".
