I have an ailing Windows s2008 R2 server. This server has several file shares. Users are able to connect to these shares using the IP in the UNC - \\10.12.50.192\data, but can't connect using the name - \\Win2008\data. I get a message box saying "\\win2008 is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Logon Failure: The target account name is incorrect"
Net View give me a little more information. When I do net view \\10.12.50.192\ I see all the shares on that machine. When I do net view \\win2008 I get an error 5 - permission.
This server is also a DC. I believe I could fix this problem by demoting it and repromoting it but it also has several of the FSMO roles on it. When I try to move these roles to another server I get the message "Win32 error returned is 0x20af (The requested FSMO operation failed. The current FSMO holder could not be contacted." I am reluctant to seize the roles from that machine as that has always resulted in problems in the past.
I have tried rebooting the machine.
The recent history of this machine includes a half day of downtime and a transition from a single NIC in a 192.168.0.x/24 network to having two NICS with one in the 192.168.0.x/24 network and another in the 10.12.50.x/24 network to a single NIC in the 10.12.50.x/24 network. The proper IP, 10.12.50.192 is registered in the DNS. I don't have any name resolution problems I'm aware of.
Thanks for any help.
