Server 2008 shares

I am receiving error 53 when using the "net view" command to a Windows 2008 server.  I am logged in as the administrator and still having the problem.

Go to the WINS tab in on your Local Area Connection then make sure you enable NetbIos over TCP\IP.

Does the server have two NICs?

Yes it has an internal and an external.

Make sure you uncheck register this with DNS on the external card under the DNS tab of the TCP\IP properties. Then do a ipconfig /registerdns on the server. Do you have WINS on your network?

NetworkdogsAuthor Commented:
We have no WINS on the network because all clients are Vista or XP so WINS is unneeded.  The DNS server is showing the correct internal ips already.

I can run a net view \\IPAddress and it works.  I can ping by name and cannot net view by name.

Did you check if NetBios over TCP\IP was enabled? Did you check the other solution if register this address with DNS is unchecked.

NetworkdogsAuthor Commented:
Yes the Netbios over TCP/IP is enabled.  The problem is with the way 08 does it shares and networking.  I have a second 08 server that is working just fine without any problems.  Unfortunately I did not build these therefore I don't have the steps taken to break it.

We have multiple 2008 machines without issues. The one issue we had was that we had two NICs one needed Register with DNS unchecked and NetBios over TCP\IP enabled. Once we disabled the second NIC we did an ipconfig /registerdns.
