Windows 7 workstation cannot access DC files except by using IP Address
Posted on 2014-09-18
Hi.. I have a client that is using a Windows 7 workstation connected to a Windows 2012 Server. Lately when clicking on the server icon in file explorer he gets a message that the Server is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource..etc.. BUT when I can get access to the files when using the IP address of the server. I have be a little reluctant to Un-join the domain and then Re-join it.. as I wasn't sure if his desktop would stay the same or if it would "loose" any of the files etc.. - Please help if you can! - If you answer to "reset" or "re-join" the domain, please let me know if the users personal files and settings would be in jeopardy at all. Thanks for your time!
