The resolver order is wins lmhosts bcast. I am not using lmhosts. Perhaps I
shuold change with to bcast wins lmhosts but I'm not sure how this would
help, I imagine this is simply a preferred order for resolution.
I am not using remote announce and/or remote browse sync although I did try
them to no avail. My understadning is that these are not necessary and
should only be used for troubleshooting. As per the logs, the announcements
and sync attempts on all subnets do occur it's just that there are 0 records
Wins.dat does indeed contain all the computers but browse.dat on each box
only contains the computers on that particular subnet.
You are the only one responding :(
Maybe this is an IPSEC / firewall issue but I dont know how to check...
