Client: Windows XP SP3 running under VMWare Fusion 2.0.1 with Bridged Networking under MacOS 10.5.8.
Server: Windows Server 2008 x64 SP1
I can ping the server, I can RDP to the server. I can't "net view" the server, or connect to shares on the server, and I get "The network name cannot be found." (Error 67).
I try to access the server via IP address with the same results.
"net view \servername" or "net view \address" returns "Windows cannot find the network path." (Error 51)
I'm only using DNS in my network, not WINS. Windows Firewall is off.
The server shows many shares in the Server Manager, and everything is accessible from other clients. I can access shares on the server logged on under my credentials from other hosts (i.e. my Citrix servers).
Basically I can't seem to do SMB sessions from one client to only this server.
From the server to this client, I can't access \clientname\c$ or \clientip\c$. If I use the client's name, I get Access Denied errors (logged on as Domain Admin on the server). If I use the IP address, I get "The network path was not found." (Error 53)
Every time the VM reconnects to the work LAN from sleep I get "duplicate name exists on the network" errors but its never been a problem. This reachability issue for this single host started yesterday.
Ideas? This is making me a little crazy. ;-)
