Network Path was not found

By ammer.selham ·
Dear All,
Our organaization is running under NT4.0 domain. Last week I installed a BDC for our domain, everything seems OK, but I have one problem which is: the server name appears in the Network Neighborhood when I dubble click on it I get the following message" \\tadbac is not accessible. the network path was not found"
Does anybody know how to solve this problem.

Regards,

Ammer

Easy.
Add a record in the LMHOSTS file on the BDC that points to the PDC. Sometimes you have to do this type of thing, especially if the BDC is on a different subnet than the PDC.
So, in the LMHOSTS file, put in the IP address, machine name and the #PRE command. For example, say your PDC is called MYPDC and it has IP 10.1.1.5
The LMHOSTS file would look like this:

10.1.1.5 MYPDC #PRE

Try that.

hope this helps

Please read Technet article Q180094 for info on LMHOSTS:
