One of my users can't get to several shares on one of our servers. He can get to two of them, no problem. The others just aren't there. If I log on to another comptuer as this user, I can access the share he's looking for. Just from his workstation.

I've installed KB896427 with no effect. There's no firewall between the server and client.

The server's Windows 2003, the client's XP Pro, all are fully patched.

He doesn't have trouble getting to any other network resources.


Thanks in advance.

download procmon from www.sysinternals.com and run it while trying to access the share from the problematic machine.
look for "access denied" error messages in the log.

The problem appears to be from Offline Folders... And I can connect to the share if i go \\ipaddress instead of \\netbiosname. Very weird. My next step will be to turn Offline Folders off and back on.
