Windows Server 2012 Using Hyper-V SMB Scanning issue
Posted on 2014-03-20
I have just established a new network environment for a client using Windows Server 2012 R2.
The current setup is as follows
1 X HP Dl380 G7, 128 GB RAM 8 X 300GB SAS drives
Have installed Windows SErver 2012 R2 withe Hyper-V role as the host.
Have installed 2 Virtual machines. 1 is the domain controller and the other a fileserver
both using 2012 R2.
All works good but we have problem where by none of the printers, all Ricoh mutlifunction machines cannot scan files to the appropriate shares. They just get stuck in the queue with a waiting status.
I have narrowed it down to the fileserver only as I made some test shares on the Hyper-V controller and the Domain controller and I can scan to those shares. For some reason
I cannot scan to any part of that virtual machine. It is split up into a C: drive and a D: drive and both drives are affected.
Here is the weird problem. 1 printer was working but the other 2 weren't. I had to make some adjustments to the network configuration by Teaming the NICS, after a reboot no printers would scan into the shared folders. All folders have permissions to all users the shares are accessible every other way. We can print to the printers okay just the scanning.
I am aware this might be a SMB problem due to the new SMB format, but am puzzled why one was scanning and then not. I just can't seem to fix the issue. i have checked firmware on printer and is up to date. I have narrowed it down to the fileserver only.
Is there anything I am missing or overlooked. Firewall issue ? or something else.
This is really causing me and my client grief.
I would appreciate any assistance.
