MyBook Workgroup disappears with PC off


I have the MBWE II, a couple of media streamers and a PC all in the same LAN Workgroup and everything works fine.

As soon as I turn off the PC, the Workgroup disappears… Is there any way for the MBWE to “advertise” the Worgroup on the network without the PC???

I know the network is still ok because NFS is still working and streamers access the files on the MBWE…


I’ve been doing some reading on the

It might be that I need to set the NAS as BDC (Backup domain controller) ???

Sorted !!!

With the PC on I made a Network shortcut on the streamer,

Then, even if the Workgroup disappears with the PC off, the shortcut still works
