Q

Only four out of five Win2k machines stay visible on the network

I have a mixed network of Win98, NT4 WKSTNS, and W2k Pro -- it is basically an NT4 single master domain running with a WINS server. There are five W2k Pro boxes that we have just added to the network, all of the new W2k machines stay visible on the network except for one. I have added it to the domain, it boots up and is visible for about 15 minutes and then it drops out of the network- the other machines stay visible. What could be going on here?
Are you using WINS on your network? Be sure that the offending machine has the correct entries for your network's WINS servers, and that it has NetBIOS enabled on the network card.
