Windows 10 Can't Access Shared Folders on Windows 2012 R2

Dear Experts,

My domain Windows 10 can't access shared folders hosted on Windows 2012 R2.  All domain Windows 7 access the shares just fine.  I tried disabling HomeGroup and such without any luck.  Thanks.

Windows 10 works just fine on Server 2012 (R2).

Open cmd.exe and type NET USE.  
Look at the list, and delete all the mappings.
Shut down (not restart), start up and map the folders again.

Can you see them?  

Also make certain Homegroup is off by requiring password protected sharing.

@John Hurst - no mappings exist and HomeGroup is off by requiring username/password... yet, the problem is still there.  Please advise.

Try resetting the network components
      
Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator
Then  netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
Also, ipconfig /flushdns followed by net stop dnscache followed by net start dnscache
Then restart the computer

@John Hurst - still doesn't work... it gives me an error "File Explorer - Windows can't find "\\ip.address\". Check the spelling and try again.

Open cmd.exe and type

NET USE T: \\serverIP\folder

What specific error number do you get?

I have no issues with Windows 10 and Server 2012

@John Hurst - The error is "System error 64 has occurred.  The specified network name is no longer available."  Only my Windows 10 machines do this... all other ones work just fine... puzzling..

I have not seen that error before. Look to the bottom of the following Microsoft post

https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/office/en-US/d5e7ae85-6a28-450a-a796-7a18fe9781ce/unable-to-map-with-hostname-or-fqdn-system-error-64-has-occurred-2008-r2?forum=winserverPN

The second last solution was the Network Reset.

The last solution is a Local Security Policy fix. Try that and please let us know.

Try a new, test, Windows User Profile (Account). Log into the new Account and test.

If this does not work, then use the Windows 10 Repair (Keeps everything)

Go to the Media Creation Link

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

Click on Upgrade to Windows 10 (even if Windows 10 is running), click on the Download button, select Open (Run) but NOT Save. Allow the program to run. Allow drivers to update. Then select Keep Everything.

Nothing is lost.
