I have a user on Windows 7, who can't open SharePoint sites via the Windows Explorer. They are prompted for their passwords and the sites or document libraries do not open.
There are 2 sites the user is not getting prompted and it has an address of:
... This work.
Other sites don't work, and they have the FQDN:
...... This site prompts for a password.
When we try to change one of the sites that is not working, the address in Windows Explorer to \\server\davwwwroot\sharep
.. And after the change, the site can be accessed.
Can you explain why on some machines the FQDN works, and on other machines it does not when accessing SharePoint sites via Windows Explorer?
