Hello ladies and gents.
I am getting a problem with one of my windows 2003 SP1 server machines.
When you normall UNC to a 2003 server not joined to a domain you get asked for login credentials to view the shared resources, however after running the recent windows updates and bringing it fully up to date i can no longer UNC to the machine. IE i goto \\ServerName\ or \\ServerIP\ and normally at this stage i would get asked for a login. now for some reason something has changed which is stopping this feature.
Any ideas what could be causeing it?
I guess one idea might be to look for how to dissable this feature on a stand alone machine and work it backwards if that would work...
The machine is running IIS and is an application server for Quality Workbench so naturally you need to be able to access a shared resource for the client program to run/update. If you've had expereince with the utility.
This is rather urgent so if anyone could help me it would be appreaciated.
*** Edit ***
I've just found out that if i UNC to \\ServerName i get asked for the login credentials but not when i goto \\ServerIP
I need to be able to use the server IP as NetBeui names cannot be translated across our WAN.
