The domain master browser must be on the DC with the "PDC emulator" FSMO
So you can't run it on a s3 member server, because you need an AD DC for
the FSMO stuff.
So currently you can't have network neighbourhood on a s4 DC.
I know that the developers have this on their list. But I don't know if
theres already a plan when it'll be included.
Here first some users missed the network neighbourhood browsing.
Meanwhile they had learned, that it's much easier to direclty connect
via \\servername. Do you have a special need for it?
