Make Vista search Local Domain instead of the Forest

Hello:

We've just put our first Vista Business machine on our network a few days ago. Everytime we browse the network - to map a network drive, install a network printer, or simply browse the network - Vista scans through the entire forest. That hits our corporate office and all other businesses below them! As you can imagine, this creates network traffic and takes forever. I don't know why, but it doens't start picking up on the machines in our building until it's already discovered 600 or so machines in the forest within other buildings.

Is there any way to have Vista only search within our local domain when working on the network?

Thanks,

Magus

Jacee:

I'm trying to figure out how to get Windows to discover only PCs in our building. The article you sent me to pertains to permissions and securities in Active Directory for file access.

Are you confused or did I miss something? :)

Thanks,

Magus
