The semaphore timeout period has expired. Unable to create folder.
Posted on 2007-03-28
I have created shares on a Windows 2000 machine to allow me to backup my SBS2003 server to that machine via our VPN. From the server, I can view all the shares and see and open files.
But I cannot save a file or create a folder on the share. I receive the error:
Unable to create folder. The semaphore timeout period has expired.
As a result, I cannot backup to this machine. I have checked the security on the target machine and the shared drive is set to all everyone to do anything. As an added measure, I tried adding the specific backup username to the target machine, to no avail.
I have also removed the share and then added the share again. No luck. When I click on Properties for the shared drive, Everyone and the backup username have Allow priviledges for everything.
What am I doing wrong?
