    When I've got the Active Directory service active, no Macs appear in the Finder Network. When I turn AD off, they all appear. My Mac is still visible on the other computers tho (they're not running AD services)

    Is there anyway to make them show when AD services is running?

    thanks

    Open /Applicaltions/Utilities/Directory Access and then click on Samba (or SMB) and click configure. Put your Mac on the same workgroup as the PCs.

    YourMac.local

    Sorry about your difficulties with Active Directory, but some 2003 servers will append the suffix *.local at the end of the DNS for intranet sites. This will cause difficulties with Rendezvous, and most administrators who are aware of this conflict will opt to not use *.local during the setup (they are given the open ended decision on what to use since it is their intranet and few words are reserved). All the SMB configuration in the world will not change this, this is done on the AD server configuration end.
