Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Just finished installing SP1 for Server 2008 R2, all went fine other than i can't access any shares using a UNC. When using \server from clients or on the server i get the following message;

Windows cannot access \\ntserver

Check the spelling of the name. Otherwise, there might be a problem with your network. To try to identify and resolve network problems, click Diagnose.

Error Code: 0x80070002
The System cannot find the file specified.

I've also tried with the FQDN and the ip and i get the same message. I've disabled the firewalls on the server and client and still have the issue.

EDIT: also found these in the event logs, unsure if they are related;

The WinRM service failed to create the following SPNs: WSMAN/; WSMAN/NTSERVER. 

Additional Data The error received was 8344: %%8344.

User Action The SPNs can be created by an administrator using setspn.exe utility.

The winlogon notification subscriber <GPClient> took 97 second(s) to handle the notification event (CreateSession).  

I'm lost at what to try now!

Have a look at this page

  • Open Regedit "HKEY LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM \CurrentControISet\Control\NetworkProvider\Order"

  • The "ProviderOrder" Key has just one value for the "hgfs"

  • Validated with another server having the same configuration the Key above and the information found were different:

  • The Key "ProvideOrder" contains: "vmhgfs,hgfs,RDPNP,LanmanWorkstation"

  • Copied the value from this server to Issued Server.
