Enabling the Computer Browser service for Windows Server 2008

Description

Enabling the Computer Browser service for Windows Server 2008

Product: SFW HA

Platform: Windows

Version: 6.0

The Microsoft Computer Browser service helps maintain an updated list of domains, workgroups, and server computers on the network and supplies this list to client computers upon request. This service must be enabled for the Symantec product installer to discover and display all domain members during an SFW HA installation.

By default, systems running Windows Server 2008 (x64) disable the Computer Browser service. With this service disabled, remote domain members on the computer lists do not display during an SFW HA installation.

Enable the Computer Browser Service on your Windows Server 2008 (x64) systems before installing SFW HA.

Refer to your Microsoft documentation for information about enabling the Computer Browser service.
