Windows cannot access \\SERVER\SHARE
Posted on 2014-11-13
this one is driving me mad. So I have this laptop running Win8.1Prox64 in standalone mode. I use this laptop to go around from client to client so the laptop isn't part of any domain.
When connected to a LAN with domain, I can resolve the server, I can ping the server, but I cannot access it. (error "Windows cannot access \\SERVER\Share. Check the spelling of the name, ..." Error code 0x80070035
The laptop is not part of any homegroup, is the network discovery ON, the location is set to PRIVATE, I can access any other share from an Apple MacOS or a Linux-based NAS, just no access to any SMB from any windows machine (Server or workstation).
DNS resolution is fine, DHCP is fine, no errors logged, I'm puzzled.
