Why cant I see shared folders
Posted on 2011-02-25
I can log into windows 7 workstation as user and cannot access shared folders on server by using server name\shared folders. But if I access server using \\ipaddress\shared folders all works great.
I can ping to both server ip and server name without a hitch.
The user can log into other workstations and remotely to server and all shares work normally.
The user told me that one day the server was down and they went and turned the server back on, when he tried to access the shared folders it asked him for his username and password and he used his computer that entire day. The next day he said it took forever to log on and his network shares no longer worked. He is not sure what day it happened on either.
I'm on site trying to figure this out now. Please help!
