BIG problem with our server!
At our school we are running windows server 2003, and about 3 weeks ago we had a power cut, ever since then connecting to the network shares hasnt been the same. Ill explain...
Right when im on the server and go to start then run then type in \\servername\sharename it wont connect it comes up wih an error about not being able to connect.. i will get the exact error later on. Now still on the server i do the same (start,run) then type \\serverip\sharename again it comes up with the error.
From the Client end if i go to Start, Run then type \\servername\sharename it connects to it perfectly no problems, but if i type in \\serverip\sharename it say network path not found.
Any ideas ive been scratching my head for a week now and its causing a problem with scanning because the scanner we have sends the scanned document to the server using ip as we cant do it by server name and its also stopping a database backup also.
Any ideas would be much appreciated
Thanks alot in advance!
