Hello all,

I have a client with 2 Macs which use a shared folder on an SBS2003 server. The Macs were moved a few days ago and were even plugged back into the same network ports as they were only moved 20cm, however once they were strated up again they have not been able to see or even connect to the shared drive on the SBS.

Any ideas on what could be stopping them?

Thanks in advance!

The first thing that comes to mind is a firewall issue.

Do they have ISA?  Are the macs configured for DHCP or Static IP?

No ISA, and they are using DHCP.

has anything else changed at all during the move?

Upgrade to Leopard?  Anything?

what about on the sbs server?  
I assum eyou disabled the digital signing through GP on the server.  Could that have been re-enabled?
