I have a network with two vlans, one for the 172. network and one for the 10. network.  When trying to access a resourse using the 10. network I get the following error:

The remote computer is not available

This happens even attempting to access a resourse on the local machine using the \\10.... address.  I can ping the 10. IP address without problems.


What can I do to access resourses on the 10. network?

Check your firewall settings, they may be active on the interface using 10 address. Also make sure the file and print sharing is enabled in the network properties, and the server service is running. Also check that the other services that should be running are actually running.

Thanks, I should have stated that I checked all of those things and they were all ok.

Can you post a ipconfig /all?

(6 other application machines do not exhibit this behavior after they were rebooted after a vlan change.)

I can't see any fault here. Are you sure the NIC is OK?

There are two nics that are teamed and I can ping the 10. ip from other machines on the network. So I don't think that it is a hardware issue.

If the NIC's are teamed, is the switch the team is connected setup correctly too? Have you tried not teaming?
