I need to know where to ask question about WINDOWS 10 Pro and Server 2008r2 file sharing RRS feed

  • Question

  • here is the proposed text. (first effort to post to TechNet forum- Should have gone to this one first.).  I think it is a win10 issue, as win7 is working fine.

    Proposed Question:

    "I am testing how a windows 10 Pro configured PC interacts with a established standalone Windows Server 2008 r2 Domain Name System using VMware. (This server is a closed loop server arrangement to facilitate testing of software)

    All my windows 7 laptops and PC's have no issues mapping to virtual shared drives that store data on our NAS storage device.

    (ex: "\\server\data\ShareDrive1") where "Everyone" has designated access to the files on virtual drive "ShareDrive1" (server is substitute for actual server name)

    My windows 10 PC joins the same domain, and access appears all normal with the exception of these virtual shared drives.  When I try to map to them, I get an "open folder" error that states:


    ""\\server\data\ShareDrive1" is not accessible. You might not have permission to use the network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permission.

    The Specified network name is no longer available"


    I've enabled file/printing sharing and network discovery on the PC's windows 10 network profile, but the problem persists.  Any ideas?
