I recently installed server 2012 essentials to my network that was running smb server 2003 at which time lost the ability to scan from the c5500 to the shared folder on the server. Previously with 2003 running i was able to do this. When installing the new 2012 OS i used the same name of the server, same ip address, same domain name. I can print to the printer but can not scan from the printer to the server or any other PC in the office. I created a user called scanner and gave the user Administrative previledges and full controll of the shared folder called "scans". I attempted to scan from the bizhub c5500 to the share folder on the server using the server name and also with just the server IP. No success scanning. I opened up the 445 ports on the server for SMB scanning.
The is a production printer for a printing company and they need to get the scanner working. Any one have any idea why the change when moving from server smb 2003 to server 2012 might have caused this?
