Cannot connect to a NAS drive from a host server

I am trying to connect to a NAS drive from a host server,

The NAS is domain joined.

When I connect either by hostname, or by IP I get the network error that windows cannot access…

I am able to ping it by name and IP.

Network discovery is turned on.

Does the NAS require SMBv1?  Gone from all modern operating systems (server and workstation) that have been fully updated.

Can you update the firmware on the NAS to possibly correct this?

if you can ping it by name and IP but no access is allowed due to a network error, generally speaking it should be an issue of blocked port. is there a filewall or router between the hosts and the NAS?
Abraham Deutsch

SMBv1 is installed the server

 The firmware on the NAS is up to date

is there a firewall or router between the hosts and the NAS
No they are on the same switch behind the same router

I get the network error that windows cannot access

NET USE R: \\NAS_IP\Folder and authenticate.   What numerical error do you get?
Abraham Deutsch

NET USE R: \\NAS_IP\Folder and authenticate.

Is NAT to be replaced with the NAS drives name and IP with the NAS IP?

I was suggesting you try the IP address to see if that works.  Yes, replace the NAS Name with the NAS IP.  Just for testing
