Unable to map network drive on Server 2003 after Windows updates
Posted on 2009-03-31
I need help here as I have a critical application that is unable to run because I'm unable to map a network drive.
I have a Windows 2003 Server with SP2 which is a domain controller (former PDC) that mapped a network drive to an AIX server. This morning, there were updates automatically installed to the server via Windows Updates and now I am unable to connect to that network drive. All other mappings are working fine. I am able to map network drives to other machines in the domain from this server. Other servers are able to map a network drive to the AIX server using the same credentials. There are no errors in the even logs that immediately point to the issue except for failed audits.
Please help. This is a mission critical application and I'm unable to find a starting place for the solutions other than to maybe rollback all the updates installed but we're probably talking about over 40 updates that by the way have also been installed on other servers that are working fine.
