When typing \\servernamehere on any server in our domain, we are unable to access the server and get an error "No Network Provider Accepted the Given Path".

We have already tried all of the following:

Verified that the issue is not with DNS, attempted the sfc /SCANNOW feature to correct this issue but it did not work, rebooted the server several times and fully updated but this didn't correct the issue.

The server in question is a Microsoft Server 2003 Standard Edition with Service Pack 2. I would be happy to answer any additional questions to help find a resolution to this issue.
