Network resources and shares not available
Posted on 2011-09-26
I have a Windows XP workstation that cannot access any network shares or resources. It can't browse the network.
It is online, and can ping other devices on the network. For example, it can ping the domain controller by IP but cannot ping it by name. The computer is online, and is using the domain controller for DNS.
If you enter \\192.168.0.2 (the servers IP) it returns a message saying that the network resources is unavaiable. When trying to join to a domain, an error comes up and says the domain contoller cannot be contacted.
It's as if it does not have a way to connect to other computers on the network. The computer browser service is running though.
It's a Windows XP computer attempting to join a Windows 2003 domain.
