Server running Windows 2003 R2.
I have a server within my domain that cannot browse to any shares on other Servers in my domain - they run Windows 2003 SP1 - OS should not be a problems as the other servers can bowse onto the c$ drive of this server no rpoblem.
If I try to browse to server A c$ I get 2 errors:
1: No network provider accepted the given path
2: The network location cannot be reached.

Strange because I can ping these servers by name AND IP address.  I have the DNS & WINS servers ip address manually entered so this should alleviate that problem.
No Windows Firewall on.
Does anyone have any other ideas - a particular service not started?  (I have however started all relevant services...)

Workstation Service is reposnsible for accessing shares on other machines.

Server Service is reponsible for providing access to share on host machine.


If you case, look for workstation server. It should be started.

Use this:

sfc /scannow

It will check if all the files are of correct version are running on the server.

Hi,
First, try to restart the workstation service (unless you already did).

And try to run this command:
nbtstat -a [Server_A_Ipaddress]

it will show if the rpc$ can be accessed.

Also, make sure it has correct DNS and WINS Primary server setup.

Just comapre it with a machine which is able to connect.

Folks - my DNS & WINS settings are correct - cmopared them before i sent this Qs in.
Also restarted all services

the command comes back with:

Team:
Node IpAddress: [192.168.1.1] Scope Id: []

           NetBIOS Remote Machine Name Table

       Name               Type         Statu
    ----------------------------------------
    OWA            <20>  UNIQUE      Registered

    MAC Address = 00-14-22-7C-A0-FC

not too sure what this indicates.....

At this stage from searching the web it may be a case of corrupt TCP/IP or Winsock....

I've have a wild guess, try checking the "TCP/IP NetBios Helper" service.

btw, the netbios status it returned is not normal, it should look like that:

Local Area Connection:
Node IpAddress: [10.0.0.3] Scope Id: []

           NetBIOS Remote Machine Name Table

       Name               Type         Status
    ---------------------------------------------
    WORK           <00>  UNIQUE      Registered
    WORKGROUP      <00>  GROUP       Registered
    WORK           <20>  UNIQUE      Registered
    WORKGROUP      <1E>  GROUP       Registered

    MAC Address = 00-50-8D-EF-76-11

sometimes it even return the user name.
It did not return domain or workgroup name which it usally does.

Folks - I have resolved the issue.
The problem looks to have been related to some broadcom drivers I had installed on my server.
I had Teamed 2 network cards.
To resolve - deleted the team - unistalled broadcom drivers software - reboot - reinstalled broadcom driver software - recreated team - all is working ok now.
Thanks for all comments.
