    My Windows Vista machine belongs to an enterprise domain and hosts a VMware
    Windows XP machine client.
    Sharing in both directions doesn't work.
    For instance, the XP virtual machine is indicated in the network nodes but
    exploring it fails and the error message indicates that "Windows cannot find
    the host name XP1 using DNS". This sound logical since the virtual machine
    is not registered in the domain DNS.
    Is there a solution to that?

  2. Create one in DNS. That's the easiest, clear cut solution. If you don't have
    access to DNS, you can create a hosts file entry. However, I don't like
    hosts files because of the administrative overhead involved and due to that
    they are machine specific.
