Where can I find the reason for this error and fix it

This error crops up on an XP backup box (SP2) running Retrospect when trying access a particular disc/share on a server (running Win2000SBS with active directories off). It is connected as a network drive. Other shares on the different disks in the same network connected server are fine. When I do a directory list of the server via explorer the result is a explorer blank page with no error messages. The same blank page on explorer is shown when doing the same network connected drive listing of the share from another server(win2003 with active dir on and is domain controller) .
 BUT...a user elsewhere on the network (running XP SP3) can still connect to the share and see the directory listing!
So where is the fault? On the server with the shared directory or on the two servers which cannot now list the directory?

Run dcdiag, and netdiag in verbose mode for both.

Also use sysinternals.com programs to investigate the permissions on the directory.


I hope this helps !

none of the tools show anything untoward....I'll just reboot them all overnight and see what gives.

Well it got worse!....at 8.55pm the SBS2000 shut itself down before I got to do a reboot!  I suspect it lost all network connectivity. The app log is full of "unable to confirm license"...presumably trying to connect with the DC. When I ran the diag tools the only thing showing as questionable from all the tools, both before and after a reboot was it failed Kerberos, and noted that would be fatal. Is that a clue to those who know?
After the reboot all is well...(except for the Kerberos fail in netdiag)
