Cannot see computers in my network places

I have a domain based on windows server 2003 R2 sp2 with xp pro sp2 with one
single domain name. There are three sites on my network. Each site has one DC
with active directory integrated DNS and DHCP. Also the DCs is WINS
server.Only the central site has two DCs. Suddenly before two days all
computers in “my network places” > “My domain name” cannot see other
computers from remote site. They can only see computer from the site they
belong to. I can access any computer in any site by UNC “\\copmutername”.
My event viewer is clear and dcdiag and netdiag run without any problems. No
change has been done to the routers. The only change is that I tranfered the
FSMO roles from one server to another in the same site.
Can anybody help please?

Re: Cannot see computers in my network places

Hello Giannis,

How did you configure all WINS servers for replication?

Best regards

Thank you for your reply.
All WINS servers replicate with the DC- WINS in the central site.I tried to
stop WINS service in every site but nothing changed.

Re: Cannot see computers in my network places

Hello Giannis,

Did you use push or pull from the servers?

Pull:
When the WINS server starts.
When a set amount of time has elapsed

Push:
When the WINS server starts.
Whenever an IP address change occurs for a name-to-address mapping in the
WINS server database.
When a value for Number of changes in version ID before replication is specified--either
globally for all push partners or individually for specific push partners--WINS
can use this value as a threshold for determining how many incremental changes
must be made to the database before it starts push replication to its partners.



Best regards

All the replication types are push/pull.
