Cannot connect new Windows 7 Computer to SBS Essentials 2011 Server
Posted on 2014-09-27
I am trying to connect a new Windows 7 computer to a SBS Essentials server. I get the error that server cannot be found. I dont know why, as I can get to the prompt where it asks for credentials and input user credentials and then I get the error.
I have done the following:
Made sure dns is working by pinging server by name. No problem. No other computer is having any issue with DNS.
I did all of the troubleshooting that the link on that error stated to do. Checked time on server and computer, removed .net framework, start the wss certificate service and made sure the net.tcp port sharing server is on. Nothing works.
The fix for the error I get, is to make sure the time matches between server and computer. It does. It still will not connect.
I am trying to connect as the user, an admin and still wont work. I even created a local admin account the same as the domain account just to see if that is an issue.
Anyone seen this or can help?
Thanks in advance.
