    Can’t access server by UNC


    by nstiglitz ·

    I am unable to access a server by unc path from my admin workstation, but I can access by unc if I use IP. Funny thing is I can access the server by unc anywhere else. I can ping the server by name, and Netbios is enabled. I did have folder redirection setup, but removed it. I still get a message that I am no longer connected to the server and that I need to synchronize, but each time I try to, it fails. Any suggestions out there?

      Perhaps you can try on your workstation at the command prompt ipconfig/flushdns

      Or perhaps check your reverse DNS settings on your server to ensure it is configured properly.

      If the “IPCONFIG /FLUSHDNS” from the prior post doesn’t change the symptoms …

      Are the DNS and WINS of this admin workstation set the same as everywhere else? Confirm with “IPCONFIG /ALL”

      Seems something is wonky with NETBIOS resolution. From your workstation, does the command “NBTSTAT -a ” produce results? and does “NBTSTAT -A ” produce the same results?

      You say this is your admin workstation.

      Did you modify your HOSTS or LMHOSTS file when you were setting things up originally.?

      If so the settings in the file would be read before anything else.
