Windows XP - Shared Folder No Longer Accessible
Posted on 2013-06-30
Client: Windows XP SP 3
Domain: Windows Server 2008 R2 DC
Client machine had a shared folder that could be accessed until here lately. No change was made to the shared folder name or the user with permission to access the folder. I can access other shares on the network without error.
Machine can be pinged by IP address or by name. Pinging by name resolves correctly.
Error that I run into when trying to view the share is:
System Error 67: The network name cannot be found
I logged into the client machine as an administrator and created a temporary folder. I shared the folder, giving "Everyone" change permission on the share and read/list contents access for NTFS. I logged into another machine and attempted to view the shared folder, but I was unable to. The error message is:
I turned the firewall off on the client machine and I was still unable to view either shared folder (the temporary one I created or the one I am trying to access).
I ran ipconfig /registerdns and tried to access the shared folders again - no luck.
