2008 R2 accessing 2003 network share
Posted on 2011-04-21
I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 standard that is having problems accessing one network server share. The server the share is on is a 2003 server. This is the kicker, I can access all other servers (2008 and 2003) on the network but this one and its our file server that everyone hits. I can hit the server using it fully qualified domain name. The problem is that the 2008 server has a program installed that is looking for the 2003 server to save files and can't see it.
Things I've tried:
editing the reg of the program with the fully qualified domain name to save files (didn't work)
edit the hosts file on the 2008 server (didn't work)
Thanks for any help
