All of a sudden for 2 days, workstations on my network are having intermittant problems connecting to share drives one of my Windows 2003 servers. I can ping the server just fine and remote into it as well.
But if I try to access the share drive via its IP ex: \\192.168.x.x\Shared... it does not find it for some reason and then it does as a while. It is not consistant and comes and goes on.
If i try to access the same share via the server name ex \\servername\Shared... No problem accessing it.
Problem there is a program that needs to acces the shard drive and has the ip mapped to it so i cant put the server name
Any idea what could be the problems? Nothing as have changed on the network
Any help would be appreciated
