I have an asp.net application on a web server which tries to create a directory on another server's windows file share such as:
This usually works fine but occasionally it will fail displaying the following:
There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request
Afterwards, this will keep happening until I RDP into the web server, open windows explorer and browse to the file-share by typing the address into windows explorer.
This works immediately, no prompt for credentials or anything like that. After this, the web application immediately starts working again and is able to create directories on the file share.
Any ideas why this is happening? Why does my work around work?
