    Netbios issue

    Locked

    by ttosun ·

    I seem to be having a Netbios issue. Here’s the problem: We have an access database on our main file server named NEWSVR. This server replaced the old file server named OLDSVR. When going to access this particular database, even though I manually navigate to the file, which is on NEWSVR, I get an error message saying:

    \\OLDSVR\Contact.mdb is not a valid path. Make sure that the path name is spelled correctly and that you are connected to the server on which the file resides.

    Whenever I go to access the database file, Access keeps looking to the old path. How do I implement the new path to the database file?

      tosun ! is your oldsvr still on the net ? if so reomove it if you don’t need it …But the problem is not really a Netbios issue , we can’t know if it is from this evidence. But sure you still have configuration / description pointers still containing the old server name. Are you using a DNS , a WINS server or tcp/ip at all ? Try ..you need a name server , do your clients log on to the server domain or not ? some database work without logging some don’t . Try to log on to the domain at boot up and restore map connections .. good luck !

      tosun agbi sunu dene , please try this . in net neigh. go into tcp/ip prperties and go into advanced settings . in that menu go to WINS tab and there you will see the choice you have for netbios . Check the box where you enable NETBIOS over tcp/ip , no matter what . iyi gunler . take care

      That is defninately a DNS/WINS issue. If you are still using WINS, shame on you 🙂

      You need to check your A records on your DNS server, and see what it has listed.

      You wouldnt be using a Hosts file, would you?? If so, you would need to change that to the new server name.

      Your infrastructure is key here. Please provide more info on your setup.

      Thanks.
