Setup: Computer A has a file share called "ABC" with full control for a specific user X in the given domain. OS on all machines: Windows Server 2008 R2 with no antivirus software
A service running on Computers B and C logged in as user X need to write to this share "ABC" on computer "A".
From time to time, the share "abc" will be visible only to computer B and not to computer C unless it is rebooted. But the share can be accessed sometimes (again very random) if I use \ipaddress\abc from computer C instead of \hostname\abc.
Also when this happens, we cannot establish a sql server connection from service to computer A from computer C.
SO I have checked the usual suspects from other related questions in this forum:
- No windows credentials are cached on the target and client computers.
- nslookup correctly displays the domain controler ip and the target computer's ip.
- When I run tracert from the client computer, target computer is reached in 1 hop.
- When I use net view targetcomputer, I get System Error 53. I also flushed and registered dns from the computer C with no success.
I am out of ideas at this point other than rebooting. and I can't rely on rebooting since we can only reboot during maintenance hours. Any help is very appreciated.
