I have a Windows 2003 R2 server "appserver" with various shares, I can access this server and shares from any machine on the network accept from itself.
I can list the shares by going to "\appserver\" but when i try to access any of the shares I getthe error message "No network provider accepted the given network path".
This is very strange since I have three very similar servers running the same os, in the same domain, with the same permissions on it's shares and they can access their own shares without problems.
I have done a lot of googling and found reference to LSA loopback connections. I have applied these fixes but still get the same error message.
Any help or ideas would be much appreciated as this has me stumped.
It appears that I can only connect to this machine remotely (shares, remote registry) etc if I use the FQDN. I can however ping the machine with it's short name and get a response the domain name is appended (as expected) to the dns request.
