Map a drive in windows 2000

By edrox ·
Hi,

I have an NT4 member server to which we map a drive to run a certain application.
I have installed a windows 2000 server and want to map a drive to the NT4 server, but I keep on getting the error: network path not found.
I can map from the NT4 server to the windows 2000 server.
From the windows 2000 I can ping the NT4 server by name, and I tried net use with the ipaddress. I get the same error.
I have IP and netbios loaded on the box.
Anybody any idea?

Thanks in advance,

Eduard de Vries

Verify the share names on the NT4 system. Also verify the permissions of the share and that the account you are using has access to the system. Examples of commands that work on the NT4 system and how you are running them on the Windows2000 system would help.

Jeff,
thanks, but the problem seems to be inter-domain related.

Can you browse to the NT 4 server from the W2K box.
If not, the W2K server does not have a Domain account.
Check properties (in W2K it's under My Computer/Network ) to make sure the server is actually "in " the Domain.

Allen,

I think you hit the right point.
My server is in a workgroup, it tries to connect to a server in another workgroup.

Maybe that's the issue, I will investigate.
Thanks
