Network Path Not Found, but workstation

By a_tank ·
I have a system that, when viewed in Server Manger appears dimmed, and cannot be reached. However, the system has run fine on the network (shrares files, email works, prints, etc.). I can ping it, but if I try to reach it via server manager or network neighborhood, it replys "network path not found". I need to share a printer on the network that this machine uses locally, and it will not let me. What to do?

Your problem is associated with NetBIOS resolution the name is being mismatched to the IP address somehow. if you have a WINS server, make sure it isn't eserving the wrong IP address for your problem server. Also, can any other PC computer browse toit. If so you might have a wrong IP listing in your LMHOST file on the computer you are trying to access it from. The LMHOST is located in the C:\WINNT\system32\drivers\etc folder. LMHOST.SAM is a sample file which is not read. The actual LMHOST file does not have a file extension. If you have a WINS server it is recommended to use it exclusively; no LMHOST files.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

You have not stated whether the system is an NT or not. I assume it is as only NT systems will stay in the Server manager list after problems occur with connecting to it. If it is an NT system then try and delete the entry from the domain and then from the system itself try and -re-setup the computer account on the domain.

I've had this occur a couple times. I've found that if I try to launch User Manager for Domains I have problems with that also. Rebooting the Primary Domain Controller has worked like a charm for me both times. This shouldn't be, but despite Microsoft claims, things still go wrong.
