One of my Windows XP clients suddenly startet getting this error when trying to map shares on SBS 2008.

I am able to connect the the shares using the IP-adress, but I need to use the servername to get all applications working.

I've found that a lot of people was able to solve this problem by deleting all existing shares (net use * /d), but that doesn't do any good in my case. All shares are removed, but the problem persists.

Does anyone have any other suggestions on how to solve this, apart from a complete client side reinstall?

Thanks

reboot after disconnecting all and it should work with whichever connection you use first.

Try adding the servername to the HOSTS file:
NT, 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, 7       
%SystemRoot%\system32\drivers\etc\

if using windows7 make sure to start notepad with administration rights then at the very bottom of that file add:

[IP of server] [servername]  *with out the []*

save file and restart machine

let's say you have two users on this domain:

jsmith and jrobinson

It's saying that you have drives or resources mapped as jsmith and now you're trying to map other drives as jrobinson.

Unmap all resources (printers included) and reboot.  Then try to map again.

you coudl also go to a DOS prompt and type:
net use * /delete

Thank you all for your efforts, but none of these did the trick. Ended up doing a resoft on the computer to get back to normal.
