unable to map to a shared folders on WHS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am unable to map to a shared folders on WHS.

    Running 32bit windows7, attempting to map a folder on the WHS server, from the client computer.

    Get error msg = Network Error, Windows cannot access \\servername\directory.  You do not have permission to access \\servername\directory.  Contact your network admin.....

    below is what I have done so far;

    1. reviewed the FAQ's on this issue.  No help found there.

    2. verified the username as mentioned in the previous FAQ is the same on both the client and WHS.

    3. verified that the username has "Full" access on the folder on WHS.

    Note; I am able to map/access previously mapped folders on WHS.

  • ping to servername from client computer gets good results w/ 0.0% loss.

    same result w/ ping to ip address.

  • This sounds like a name resolution issue. What are the results of pinging your server by name from the client with the issue? By IP address?
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
