Sharepoint - Open with Explorer Issue (Only working with non-domain joined machines)

I have tried everything I can google to get our SharePoint 2013 Foundation Server to allow - Open with Explorer.

This used to work in the past but has since stopped.

The item I hope will give somebody some attempt to assist me to resolve is -  this function will work with a non domain joined computer.  All domain joined machines will no longer allow it and throw up the error - add to Trusted Sites which makes no difference.

Ensure all updates are installed (client/server)
Added to trusted sites (seems you have done that)
Ensure Web Client Service is running (client)

You mention two points that are important.
  • One - this just broke recently,
  • Two - this works with non-domain machines

Seems if a group policy was recently applied to Domain machines that broke this. Check with the System Admin to see what recent GPO changes were applied. If there is a new policy being applied that broke this, maybe they can resend the policy and return your functionality.

Good luck...

The only thing that changed is we introduced 2 new 2016 domain controllers.  We haven't raised the functional level of AD though yet.

HI,

it definitely sounds like a GPO,

You can run this command from an administrative command line

gpresult /H c:\users\<myUserName>\desktop\gporeport.html

then you can open gporeport.html to see the settings that are getting applied to your machine and your account and by which GPO
