  • Not all Servers display

    I've been using Hyena for a while but it recently started doing something that has me stumped. One day the Servers tree began only showing the servers on my subnet. I can find the others under the Computers tree, but they used to all show under Servers. I figure it it something I changed, but I can't find what it might be. Can anyone shed light on how to get all servers to display under Servers?

    Thanks.

    This list comes from your Windows Browse List, so probably something changed with browsing on your network.

    The Computers folder is built by the computer accounts in the domain, which is why it has all computers.

    If you can fix the browsing issue you'll see these other servers in the Servers folder.

      I haven't noticed any other browsing related issues, but I wll look into it.

        I have noticed this from time to time, but only since upgrading to 5.5. I usually close Hyena and go back in all Server are there.

          The code and technique to get the servers has not changed since v1.0, which was released seven (7) years ago. There also isn't any state or anything saved from one session to the next. The Windows browse list is not reliable and is a source of constant support problems.

          If using Windows 2000, your best option is to move all servers into a special OU, ie "Servers". Then, just manage the servers from there and use Object Manager -> Nodes to disable the display of the Servers node.

            Well, the browse list was the issue. I did some browse list troubleshooting and Hyena again displays all of our servers. Not sure exactly what fixed it so I'll call it a fine job of zengineering.

            Thanks for the replies.
