We are able to use Windows XP boxes as clients to map drives on an EMC SAN, but not from Windows7 or server 2008R2
If we put the IP address into the "map network drive" window of XP as \\x.x.x.x we can browse the drive and see available directories (prior to entering a user name and password).
When we do the same from a Win7 box or from a server 2008R2 box, we get network path not found.
The XP box and the Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 boxes are sitting next to each other on the same segment, and are members of the same domain.
The Win7 and Server 2008 boxes can ping the SAN.
Is there something different about how Win7 maps drives compared to XP that is preventing the Win7 box from seeing the SAN.
There must be settings on Win7 that need to be changed.
