  • Delay Listing Servers

    I've started experiencing a long delay when I click on the "Servers" tree. There are no delays when selecting any other tree, i.e Containers O/U, Domain Controllers, Computers, Users... etc. How does Hyena (v 6.5) enumerate the server list?

    Thanks

    Re: Delay Listing Servers

    The Servers list is built by the Windows browse list. AD does not have any mechanism to show which computers are servers. The only reason that I can think of why a browse list would be slow would be if the browser your computer is contacting if very far away or very slow. I think there are some utilities on the Windows Resource Kit or Microsoft's site that you can use to see who the browsers are.

    Alternately, you can move your servers into their own OU (won't affect anything as far as AD is concerned) or manage them through the Computers object and sort on some attribute to get the servers grouped together.

        Found the problem... The Windows Firewall service had been stopped and set to Manual. The Computer Browser service will not run properly with the firewall service off.

          I noticed the same problem and in my case a workaround was to allow all traffic on the firewall. But I would like to enter a rule, but what might be it?
