Error 53 "The specified computername could not be located on the network
Posted on 2010-03-23
I use a bootdisk which does everything for me, finds the NIC gets the dynamic IP.
Then I map a shared drive on a server.
I have two servers where this is not working to map the drive.
I get the error 53!
All other servers its working to map.
I have checked that firewall is disabled, same anti-virus is running on working and non working.
No event log messages. I can ping the server from the prompt but not map, if I try to map with IP its the same error. Strange thing is that on the working servers I can map only using host name and not IP. If I use IP i get the same error.
I have recreated a new share also.
Driving me nuts any ideas?
