Server 2016 And 2012 R2 - Turn on Network Based Discovery Video Tutorial

  Windows Server 2012 R2 and 2016 are used for sharing data. To easily find such shares the network discovery service in the advanced sharing section needs to be turned on. It is not a simple turn on like in Windows 10. In Server 2016 and Server 2012 R2 a few services need to be enabled from the disabled state and turned on first.

19. 00:00:53:96 / 00:01:01:69 - off ok now I'll give you a quick example
20. 00:00:57:39 / 00:01:04:34 - of having it on what does it actually do
21. 00:01:01:69 / 00:01:06:92 - ok we're on our client computer
22. 00:01:04:34 / 00:01:08:98 - and we want to see what happens ok
23. 00:01:06:93 / 00:01:12:03 - network just by clicking on there
24. 00:01:08:98 / 00:01:16:50 - automatically it found server 0:06
25. 00:01:12:03 / 00:01:18:35 - which was basically the server that had
26. 00:01:16:50 / 00:01:21:50 - network discovery turned on you can
27. 00:01:18:35 / 00:01:22:70 - click refresh you know and it'll find
28. 00:01:21:50 / 00:01:25:25 - the day you got you see it keeps finding
29. 00:01:22:70 / 00:01:26:81 - it almost instantaneously and then you
30. 00:01:25:25 / 00:01:29:40 - can go in there and see what's being
31. 00:01:26:81 / 00:01:34:88 - shared etc ok
32. 00:01:29:40 / 00:01:41:72 - so back to how to enable the network
33. 00:01:34:89 / 00:01:44:67 - discovery in Server 2012 and 2016 ok the
34. 00:01:41:72 / 00:01:47:25 - first thing to know it's actually all do
35. 00:01:44:67 / 00:01:47:70 - the services being disabled or turned
36. 00:01:47:25 / 00:01:59:46 - off
37. 00:01:47:70 / 00:02:03:95 - okay so services ok go there and you
38. 00:01:59:45 / 00:02:08:28 - need to make sure 4 main services are
39. 00:02:03:95 / 00:02:11:55 - enabled ok just give this a little bit
40. 00:02:08:28 / 00:02:14:33 - of time to list through all the services
41. 00:02:11:55 / 00:02:17:64 - the first thing is DNS client
42. 00:02:14:33 / 00:02:20:64 - okay there we go make sure it's running
43. 00:02:17:63 / 00:02:24:35 - okay if it is disabled or whatever
44. 00:02:20:63 / 00:02:27:28 - property is you know change it to manual
45. 00:02:24:36 / 00:02:30:12 - or automatic and then start the service
46. 00:02:27:28 / 00:02:32:57 - okay automatic it starts up every time
47. 00:02:30:12 / 00:02:38:90 - manual you need to manually do it okay
48. 00:02:32:58 / 00:02:38:90 - that was the first one then we have
49. 00:02:39:13 / 00:02:45:26 - function discovery resource publication
50. 00:02:42:68 / 00:02:47:66 - this generally comes disabled at the box
51. 00:02:45:26 / 00:02:50:12 - okay so once again make sure you turn to
52. 00:02:47:66 / 00:02:59:69 - manual or automatic and then start the
53. 00:02:50:12 / 00:03:02:18 - service okay then we have SSDP discovery
54. 00:02:59:69 / 00:03:04:56 - okay similar kind of concept make sure
55. 00:03:02:18 / 00:03:09:00 - it's turned on to automatic or manual
56. 00:03:04:56 / 00:03:16:46 - and you start it okay if it's not
57. 00:03:09:00 / 00:03:18:20 - started and the final one is you UPnP
58. 00:03:16:46 / 00:03:21:04 - there we go
59. 00:03:18:20 / 00:03:26:69 - this one similar concept okay basically
60. 00:03:21:04 / 00:03:30:93 - make sure it's running it's manual okay
61. 00:03:26:69 / 00:03:32:39 - not disabled okay this you can probably
62. 00:03:30:93 / 00:03:34:07 - survive without it as you can see it's
63. 00:03:32:40 / 00:03:36:42 - not running and we still had that work
64. 00:03:34:07 / 00:03:39:81 - discovery okay however these are the
65. 00:03:36:41 / 00:03:41:96 - four things that Microsoft suggests need
66. 00:03:39:81 / 00:03:44:34 - to be up and running okay so once you
67. 00:03:41:96 / 00:03:49:65 - have these things enabled and started
68. 00:03:44:34 / 00:03:52:01 - okay all you then need to do is right
69. 00:03:49:65 / 00:03:57:09 - click over there open network and
70. 00:03:52:01 / 00:03:59:96 - sharing Center advanced sharing and then
71. 00:03:57:09 / 00:04:04:68 - very simply based on the profile for
72. 00:03:59:96 / 00:04:06:98 - example private or gas public domain etc
73. 00:04:04:68 / 00:04:08:87 - what you want to do turn on network
74. 00:04:06:98 / 00:04:12:81 - discovery and then click Save Changes
75. 00:04:08:87 / 00:04:15:44 - and you will get the behavior that was
76. 00:04:12:81 / 00:04:19:57 - shown before thank you for watching
77. 00:04:15:44 / 00:04:19:57 - hopefully this has helped thank you
