    Force remapping of Network without a reboot

    Hi there

    Sometimes if I bring a new Linux server machine up online and take down an old one some Windows machines cannot see the new machine but still list old computers in the Network mapping.

    Is there a command to FORCE a rescan of Network computers without REBOOTING the windows machine.

    I've waited 15 mins and Network still shows OLD server and not the new one.

    (The Linux new server sees ALL the Windows machines once the SAMBA service starts and can access THEIR shares !!).

    example -- new server is GYLFI-EXT (has Movies etc streaming data), Old Server GYLFI

    Windows only sees OLD server

    New Server sees Windows and can access its shares.

    Nothing running on the Windows machine currently so I can't see what's stopping it getting the new machine. (I'm trying to stream my movies to it -- works fine when I can SEE the server !!!!).

    A (Windows) reboot fixes this stuff but I shouldn't have to do it.

    Don't know if you solved this already but.. what worked for me was an admin command prompt running
    ipconfig /release

    ipconfig /renew

    That would be a router and/or Domain Server issue.

Force SuperFetch to NOT ignore SSD.
Is there anyway to force SuperFetch in Windows 8.1 to not ignore SSD's? I like the way SuperFetch ran in Windows 7 on my SSD boot drive, it did not ignore the SSD and was more aggressive which made loading programs smoother if the program being loaded was already cached. Maybe through regedit...
