I have a windows 2003 SBS setup with 5 client PC's. I have connected 3 clients so far. All connected fine with \\servername\connectcomputer. I can't get this one connected. I keep getting "Windows cannot fine //servername\connectcomputer. Check spelling or try again. I tried connecting through my computer properties. WHen i put in the domain, i get the username password box to connect, then get an error of "Multiple connections to a server or shared resource by the same user, using more than one username, are not allowed. Dissconnect all previous connections to the server or shared resource and try again." I have changed the computer name, removed the computer name from server, etc. Anyone seen this? I can get to a share on the server. I can ping the server and the server can ping this client. Thanks

i figured it out. I had a share that was still open from before. I disconnected the share, rebooted, and was able to run the connect computer command successfully.
