2000 or 2003 to XP, Large files, get error: The specified network name is no longer available
Posted on 2006-05-07
2000 server SP4 w/ latest updates
XP pro SP2 w/ latest updates (3 of them)
2003 Small Business Server, SP1 w/ latest updates
All systems are connected on a LAN.
Copy files from 2000 or 2003 to XP. After about 5 minutes I get the error: The specified network name is no longer available. copy tried 2 ways: copy cmd in a bat file, and windows explorer cut and paste. Same error. Some other notes:
Once I get this message, all attempts to access the share (from the copy cmd or windows explorer) gives the error: The network path was not found. Disabling and enabling the network adapter will not clear up the problem, the 2000 or 2003 server must be IPL'ed to even see the share again.
Uninstalling and installing the device did not help.
Performing the copy/paste operation on the destination XP machine works.
The problem occurs on all XP machines.
The 2003 machine is a small business server with ISA 2004 SP4. Both servers are Domain Controllers, the 2003 SBS machine controls all domain roles.
I dont know when this problem started or if it ever worked correctly (I have always initiated copies from the xp clients in the past).
Thanks in advance.
