Having problems in a 10 computer WinXP Pro SP2 environment. Currently have all machines on and connected 2 that cannot connect to the main computer(server). Also have 2 printers that are shared out on the network.
Now the error message the 2 computers are getting is :
"Network resource unavailable, you may not have permission to access that resource...." bla bla bla. Tried dropping down to a command prompt and doing a "net view" from both computers, comes back with error code 71.
In researching this, it looks as if the browser list on the workstations are not able to get updated.
I also noted on each computer that is having workgroup connectivity issues that they have computer browser errors (trouble in starting the service).
Now I went into the main computer (the server) and killed one of the sessions that had 2 connections to the server (not exactly sure why... but suspect files active and also printers?)
What I'm concerned about is the long term solution for the client is that they may run into this issue again and that I'll have to manually go back in and kill sessions to get other computers to come up on the workgroup.
As of now, the two computers can connect to shares on the server but still cannot execute a "net view" via the command prompt, they're still getting an error 71 code.
Thanks in advance.
