    Can't see host W2k3 server from VM Server

    Years ago I experimented with setting up my working server (Server2) as a VM on a real W2k3 server (Server3).

    All went well - doesn't run very fast but no matter in a small primary.

    So everything is running on Server 2 VM (when I say everything I mean DHCP/DNS/File and print serving - non of that AD nonsese )

    But one thing that doesn't 't work is that I can't access any shared folders on Server3 either from client PCs or Server2
    (Never been a problem - I jsut used it as a host - but now I'd like to run a separate dropbox account on it and share it out)

    it doesn't show up in any network places.

    BTW It is just setup as File Server role.

    Any ideas as to what simple setting I need to turn on to get it to appear on the network?

    What VM software is the VM running in?

    I have run a server and a workstation in a Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 environment but then started to use ESXi as then you don't have to sit on a Windows operating system
