Hi ,


I am trying to list the computers on my network using the net view command with the /domain switch , so that i could change my computer to be a part of a domain/workgroup and still be able to get the list.

Anyways , the problem is that, whenever I change my computer from being part of domain 'A' to a Workgroup 'B' or vice versa, the net view command still shows me as part of the earlier domain that i belonged to , PLUS the new workgroup/domain that i have registered into.

Why does this happen ? Is there a way out ?

Awaiting your help ...

Thanks!

Or ...is there a way by which i can list all the available domains/workgroups or both in a given environment?

You have to wait for the list to timeout and be removed, it doesn't happen immediately.

Thanks! You are right ..i tried the command after some time ...and the list is updated now correctly.

Is there a way to change this timeout value ? Or even a way to monitor the same database/data that the 'net view ' command gets its information from ?

Thanks again ,
Ruby

I actually don't know of a way to change the timeout, though I'm sure there probably is one. Since I know it corrects itself after a period of time, I just ignore the extra nodes until they disappear. :)
