New Macs and Network Problems


G

Guest

We have never had Macs in our network environment before. The NG through a couple of Macs on the organizational network (without knowing anything about Macs, without any pre-planning, without any coordination, without any regard to security, without any regard to anny network issues that might arise or security holes he might open up) and ever since then, we are no longer able to browse our network (our complete network). We can browse our own domain (but we cannot see all the computers) but we cannot browse the other domains.

Would a Mac attempt to act as a master browser? If services for the Mac were installed on a member server instead of a DC, would that member server attempt to act as the master browser (because it's providing browse services to the Macs). I don't know if putting the Macs on the network caused this problem or if it is just coincidental that both these things happened at the same time.

Macs with Mac OS 10.2 and 10.3 have Samba installed, and they can become
master browsers.
