cannot connect to a Windows 2003 Server
I have a new Vista Business notebook that cannot see the windows 2003 server
on the network. It DOES see all other XP machines and does get to the
internet.

I tried dynamic and static IPs on the notebook. And I have the DNS on the
notebook set to the server IP.

I can reach a server shared folder by IP i.e. \\192.168.0.250\public but
this does not seem to work to log on to the domain etc. And I cannot join the
domain as the Vista PC cannot see the server by name.

Also is there any way to search for a computer by name on the network in
Vista? I could use this search in XP to find a computer.

I would appreciate any ideas why or what is different with the Vista PC.

Sounds like name resolution issue. Posting the result of ipconfig /all here
may help.

Re: cannot connect to a Windows 2003 Server
Here is the IP config. I noticed at the bottom NetBios is disabled, if this
is the problem where do I turn it on in Vista?

NetBIOS over Tcpip is enabled. So that is OK. However, you have two DNS
server. Do this test. Run nslookup command on the Vista and server. post
back with the error.
