So I have Windows Server 2003 and I'm running into a weird issue.
Using XP or Win 7 machines I cannot browse the shares using the servers hostname
I get this error
"The network location cannot be reached. For information about network troubleshooting, see Windows Help."
I can however ping the server by name fine and I can remote desktop into it by name fine also.
I can also connect to the shares using the server ip address
and that works fine.
Also I can browse the shares fine by name from within other servers, just not on client XP and Win 7 machines.
Does anyone have any idea?
\\server.domain.name also works and allows me to browse the shares.
and all other servers are working fine with \\server connection, only one server is giving me issue, and it's a recent problem it has worked fine in the past.
