    SnapServer missing from Network Neighborhood, accessible w/Fin.

     

    ---Solution---

     

    Find Computer locates systems faster than the browse list (which makes systems appear in Network Neighborhood) can be refreshed and replicated around the network. Also, the SnapServer shows up in WORKGROUP by default, while the user may be in a different workgroup or domain.<P>
    On a Microsoft Network a Master Browser system is responsible for keeping a table of all of the systems available on a network, and replicating that table to all of the workstations on the network. It can take several minutes for a new entry to be sent around the network. Find Computer (Start, Find, Computer, and enter the SnapServer default name which is Snap+SerialNumber) uses a different (faster)mechanism to locate systems on the network.<P>
    Also, the SnapServer uses the Microsoft default workgroup of WORKGROUP, which may be different from the workgroup/domain on the network where the server is installed. Users may need to switch the Snap Server into their workgroup or domain, or hunt for the workgroup WORKGROUP to find the SnapServer in Network Neighborhood.
