\\IP Address is not accessible. You might not have permission to this network resource"

I have six windows 2003 servers (R2) with SP2 installed in a workgroup at 6 different sites (inc. separate subnets). On one server in particular, I am receiving sporadic connectivity when attempting to access shares by IP address and receive the following error:

 \\IP Address is not accessible. You might not have permission to this network resource".

Once I clear the errors and attempt to access it again, the share opens instantly without issue.

We are not using DNS for resolution. I have restarted the TCPIP NETBIOS HELPER and WORKSTATION services and the issue persists.

I am running continuous pings and there aren't any packets dropping.

Any thoughts

A look at Server's Windows Application and System Logs (run eventvwr) could help. Are there any Errors/Warnings listed in the mentioned Logs?

So you are going through routers?

Have you configured IP helper on them for the various subnets?

We are are not experiencing any other connections issues between any other servers between the sites. A couple things to note:

- This site is connected via a VPN connection to the other sites whom are on a MPLS.
- All servers in this scenario are in a workgroup, not a domain.
- Name resolution should not be an issue because we are using IP addresses to access the shares...

Talk to your MPLS provider,it sounds like it's on their end.

Even if there are not any drops when pinging or no drops during a traceroute.

Pinging and traceroute are elementary tools used for basic connectivity testing.

You are going through a packet switching network with a whole lot more complexity than ping and traceroute can trouble shoot.
