we recently restarted the server at a client, windows 2012 server
the next day a windows xp system was not able to connect to server resources or reconnect to the domain, where full ip connectivity and name resolution was working properly.
also the copier which scans to a server share and a wide format printer which does the same was not able to scan to the server, both doing so with smb.
i'm guessing this to be an issue with smb protocol.
we gave a loaner windows 7 system and that resolved that issue for now and changed the copier to use ftp vs smb. went to alternate win 7 pcs for the wide format to scan to ..
still having an issue, thinking its an smb thing but not certain. only thing that happened was a server reboot the night before then it was friggin Armageddon the next day.
