I can't my server on the Network...

By ART23 ·
We just a added a file server on our NT network on our network. We are able to ping it by both name and IP but when we try to map a drive to it, it does not see it. We have both drives shared as c$ and D$ but still no avail. Help is definitely needed. The pc is running NT 4.0 workstation(not server). Also when browsing through network properties and in our domain we are unable to see. What changes are needed to be made on the domain controller to allow us to see it?

With Regard to what I said in my previous posting of the same question earlier.

Make sure you are logging on the Workstation as an administrator. Then you should be able to view the network properties. Make sure you have added the workstation to the domain. Place a tick where it askes you to add the computer to the domain, by placing in a Domain Admin's username and password. Otherwise just rename the workgroup to the same name as what the local domain is. Also make sure that the TCP/IP settings show a correct subnet mask and IP address (check another PC on the network to get the same subnet mask and IP range)

Nothing has to be done on the server.

Also make a directory on the PC and share that with rights for everyone to access it(or only certain users - for security). Then you can map to the shared folder.

As I said C$ and D$ are hidden shares for admin use.

Cheers ....

I recommend that you just rename the shares as "Drive_C" and "Drive_D" ; the dollar sign at the end of your current shares is what makes them hidden.

Can you give the reason why it was rejected ? Or give more information about your problem.

The pc is on the domain already and it but it is not being seen out there by the network. The only way tha you could possibly see it is by pinging it.

Can you map by IP address? Go to start\run\ and type \\xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx\d$ and click ok. If you are able to reach the server like that, then you have a WINS issue. Make sure you have the WINS IP address set in the TCPIP properties on the server. Make sure also that the workstation you're trying to map from is running WINS as well.

Hope this helps. TJ

That was the second thing that I tried. It failed as well when trying to map by IP address.

Can you see the new workstation in server manager?
You can only map to c$ and d$ if you have administrative rights, no changing that. Make folders on the c and d drives and then share them. Users should not be mapping to the c$ and d$ shares. Example folder temp could be shared on server "testserver" and the mapping would be \\tempserver\test
If you can't do this we need to know more specifically what is wrong.
and like another person said, do check the wins database.
