NETWORK PATH NOT FOUND AND WINDOWS 2000 MIXED MODE DOMAIN
Posted on 2004-11-15
Setup is as follows:
2 Active directory trusted domains. BRANCH and HO.
In the Branch AD Domain, utilzing windows explorer one can see all the servers and shares particular to that domain
In the HO AD Domain, utilizing windows explorer one can see all the servers and shares particular to that domain
In the branch domain you can gain access to the shares on the HO domain controller(s)
In the HO domain you can gain access to the share on the BRANCH domain controlelr(S)
You can map a drive via FQDN from the HO to the BRANCH domain and from BRANCH TO HQ.
i.e. net use j: \\host.domain.com\c$
You can ping via name and FQDN to and from all servers in both AD Domains.
When you log into the HO domain and try to access a share in the BRANCH domain via Windows Explorer you receive the error NETWORK PATH NOT FOUND.
NetBios over TCP is enabled on all machines that are trying to access each other.
The domain is mixed mode
1 NT 4 Domain controller and several 2000 Domain controllers.
WINS is in place on the NT 4 Domain controller and each machine points to that machine for WINS lookup.
Trust relationship set in Active Directory domains and trusts
Would anybody be able to point a direction to look for why the netbios name displays the error NETWORK PATH NOT FOUND.
Would anybody have any idea as to why the machines can't be browsed for resources from one domain to the other?
