The Windows 2003 AD Domain I manage has several Windows XP clients and one Windows 7 RC1 client. Recently, the Windows 7 client has started refusing to access network shares unless the FQDN of the host is provided. Interestingly, DNS resolution using only the hostname works fine. Does anyone know what could be causing this or how to resolve it?
ping hostname \\hostname.mydomain.internal\MyShare
\\hostname Error: Error code 0x80070035 - The network path was not found. \\hostname\MyShare Error: Error code 0x80004005 - Unspecified error
This issue resolved itself about a day after I posted this question. Perhaps it was a time synchronization issue as Moose suggested. Thank you all for your help. If I am ever able to reproduce this problem, I will revisit this question and explore these solutions further.
