Sharing problem between XP Pro clients and SBS 2003 server
Posted on 2008-10-01
I have a Small Business Server 2003 domain with 20 XP Pro members. 2 of the computers are having problems connecting to a mapped drive using the UNC name. They were previously working fine. The local IT staff cleaned up some of the server shares and this issue starting happening. While the clients cannot see the server share using the UNC, they can if they use the server's ip address or FQDN.
In summation \\server will not work. \\192.168.X.X and \\server.domain.local work fine.
One more thing, If I connect using the UNC name, I see a single share ( thats not on the server) that is name "<username> My Documents"
Does anyone have any ideas on what is happening?
