Suddenly we cannot browse shares on servers at our remote site B from site a and vise versa, we can ping and send emails but when we try browsing we get the error:

No network provider accepted the given network path.

I get the following Directory Service Event IDs:
1566
1311
1865
1925
I re-created and verified Sites and services connections and verified DNS as well and there are no strange DNS Event IDs.
Please help urgently

1. Make sure you are able to ping the Workstation by FQDN
2. Simply Enable File and Print Sharing For Microsoft Networks From Properties of Local Area Connection.

Can you access them by IP ?

Check your shares, enable file and printer sharing. Check network policies. Change the Security Policy - Network security > LAN Manager authentication level > Send LM & NTLM responses.
Check services i.e. workstation service on the client and server service on the server.

Have you tried to change the sourcepath to a path which point to the i386 folder?

Or you can try to copy the i386 to c: instead.
