One share works the other doesn't
Posted on 2013-11-20
I have a weird issue at a client's place.
Problem goes like this:
Machine maps two drives by on the same file server. Call them Y: and Z:
map goes like this:
Y:\ -> \\server\mount point 1
Z:\ -> \\server\mount point 2
Both mount successfully. Y:\ is accessible and browseable. Z:\ is not accessible giving Network path not found.
If I map Z:\ by IP, it works. DNS is pointing at the DC and the server user has access to the mount (set to Everyone as it's a public share on both security and sharing)
This is extremely frustrating and makes no sense to me at all from a techincal stand point. How can Y:\ work every time and Z:\ not work?
