unable to map by hostname
Posted on 2008-11-09
Need some advice. I have very weird problem in one of member windows 2003 server. I just try to map \\Servername\shared (either command line or via windows explorer), but I am being challenged with password and it's not accepting my password if I key in.
What I have done and found out:
-. I can map some other server without any problem.
-. The server is guest OS in ESX, but I don't think this is ESX server or environment problem. As other server which is seating on same ESX, doesn't face similar problem
-. Other server which is seating in same subnet has no similar issues. I guess I can rule out on firewall or network.
-. I will be same problem if I use FQDN, strangely enough that I can map by IP address
-. I have tried to re-join the domain, but still no luck
-. Cant find any clue or new entry in event log which hoping can give some hints.
-. If I map in command prompt by typing "net use \\servername", I can map in windows explorer without being challenged by password
