I should not have included printers, as there is a button in the toolbar to view those. Scheduled Tasks, though, do not appear. All machines involved are members of the domain. Perhaps I am missing something glaringly obvious - I wouldn't put it past me.
Eh, unfortunately I am at work atm so I cant definitively troubleshoot. If you "manage" the device via AD I believe there is an option to view scheduled tasks, although then again, this may only have been implemented in Server 2008 and not 03.
Managing Scheduled Tasks through AD is not implemented in in 2003, or 2003R2. Interestingly, Scheduled Tasks do not appear when I browse 2008 machines either. I've hunted around for answers to this and done a good bit of troubleshooting myself, to no avail. Unless there's a reg hack, I may be looking for the most convenient workaround rather than a solution.
I will do some looking tonight when I get home. I think you would be able too manage [scheduled tasks] via AD but only when using Server 2008 FFL, this unfortunately would mean that you would only be able to use Server 2008 DCs. I will fire up the VMs to verify, also see if I can find any workarounds since Im rather interested in this as well.
Just ran into this thread and had just worked through this issue. Working on a 2003 Domain Controller trying to access scheduled tasks on a Windows 7/32Bit box in the domain. When browsing by name \\computername, no scheduled tasks or printer options are shown.
Manage the target computer via run -> compmgmt.msc -> Action Menu -> connect to another computer or your method of choice.
Go to services and make sure that remote registry service is started on the client. I set it to automatic as well....personally it is handy to bang on a registry when you need to get to the point quickly. It may pop up a message about another service not being available. It still starts anyway.
Once remote registry was started, now I see Sheduled Tasks by browsing \\computername
Now what I'd really like is to be able to see Printers and Faxes on Windows 7 across the network, which is how I got here in the first place. It is handy to add a single local or TCP printer to a box or better yet, change settings and update drivers over the network for a doamain computer without having to script, change or make GPO's or take over the machine.
I have a user that has an IP printer in a back office that just upgraded to Windows 7 and is having print problems which I know are driver related....she's maybe one of two people that uses the printer, really no need to be a shared printer off of a server...and typically it would take 10 seconds to update the driver on an XP box over the network once RDP'ed into the server.
It would be nice to find a way to show Win7 printers and faxes across the network without having to reboot the box if it is a registry change.
