network discovery? problem

I have a problem. We have 4 network storage drives between 2 offices that our servers backup to daily. every other week we swap 2 of the drives out with the other office so that we have backups in 2 locations offsite. the problem is that the 2 offices are on the same domain but 2 differant subnets. even though the drives are set to use dhcp, I cannot find it on the network after sending it to the other office. Everything else (computers) can be seen using network discovery. I have even tried to use static ip's but that did not work either. do you have any ideas on how to get these drives to show up after I ship them to the other location?
