Unable to access a Window 7 Network share with a Windows 10 system

Issue with Mapping drive from windows 10 system to a windows 7 system after 1709 update
I am having an issue with a windows 10 system. We wiped out the system and reinstalled Windows 10 and redeployed it to the site.
After 2 weeks it downloaded the 1709 feature update and now it refuses to map a drive to 2 shares on the same system that worked
before the update. Rolling back the update doesn't help and a rewipe is not possible at this point, nor is it wanted. The system will
map and browse to all other systems but just not this one. When it tries to access it it gives the error:
" Unable to access <computer name>\share. Network name no longer exist "
This happens even if you manually type it. If you use Command prompt, it will just hang and require you to reboot the system.
I have tried this so far to resolve it:
set static IP's for both systems.
connect via IP address
remove and re-added Client for Windows, IPv6, SMBv1/CIFS support, File and Printer Sharing,
Made sure that both was set to Work/Private networks.
Any help is Apreciated
