I'm currently having issues accessing shared folders on a Windows Server.
Flat standalone network with 2 Windows Servers (2008 R2 SP1) and 2 Windows Clients (Windows 7 SP1 64bit). All machines are configured with a static IP address, configured in a single workgroup (i.e. no DC). Each machine is configured with only one user (Administrator) and all have the same password.
Client 1 cannot access the shared folders on Server 1 using the hostname in the address. It can however access them if using the IP address of the machine. The error we are receiving is "
The Specified network password is not correct" (the correct details are being used).
Client 1 can access shared folders on Server 2 without any problems. Client 2 and Server 2 can access the shared folders on Server 1 without any problems.
If we ping the hostname we get a valid response.
What's been Tried:
- The times are in sync
- GPO Setting -
Network Security: LAN Manager Authentication Levelis set at "
Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated" system wide.
- GPO Setting -
Network access:Sharing and Security model for local accountsis set as "
Classic" system wide.
- Home Group is turned off on both Windows 7 Clients.
- The Advanced Sharing Settings are set the same on Client 1 and Client 2.
- The "Workstation" Service is set at automatic and has started.
- The hosts file is correctly configured. There is no
lmhosts.samdoesn't contain any records.
- The credentials have been manually added to the windows credential manager with no effect.
- A new user has been added to both Client 1 and Server 1, the problem does not change.
- Manually mapping a network drive (including using different credentials) presents the same error.
While yes a possible solution could be to use the IP address rather than the hostname, this isn't possible as the IP Addresses will be changed after we have completed works on the system.
Sorry for the War and Peace Question, thanks for any help you can give.
