Publishing Shared Devices in Active Directory Listing

    I am running SBS W2k3, but have not been able to publish
    any shares in active directory. For example, how do you
    publish a shared device in active directory?

    Although I specified a DvD drive and a printer should be
    shared, given them names, and specified that they should
    be published, they do not show up in Windows Explorer when
    you expand "Entire Network" under either "Microsoft
    Windows Network" or "Directory." For that matter, none of
    the computers connected to the network are listed here,
    either.

    Any ideas why not?

    Thanks.

  2. How many nics in the server
    What are they connected too.
    What DNS address is assigned to both??
    Is each nic in a different subnet??

    Two NICs.

    The local area router, IP address 192.168.16.9, is
    connected to an external DSL router with address
    192.168.16.1.

    The server local area connector, IP address 192.168.0.9,
    is connected to a local router.

    Both are using subnet 255.255.255.0.

    The server is acting as a DHCP.

  4. Hi Jeff,

    Can you please post the complete ipconfig/all from the server and one from a
    client?

  5. What DNS address do you have on each nic and are you seeing and errors in
    any of the event viewers??

    Both NICS point only to 192.168.0.9 for DNS. The only
    error in the DNS event viewer log is as follows:

    "DNS server has updated its own host (A) records. In
    order to ensure that its DS-integrated peer DNS servers
    are able to replicate with this server, an attempt was
    made to update them with the new records through dynamic
    update. An error was encountered during this update, the
    record data is the error code.

    If this DNS server does not have any DS-integrated peers,
    then this error
    should be ignored."
