Solved: You might not have permission to use this network resource - Tech Support Guy Forums
Also make sure that the Computer Browser service is running.
Up untill recently i was able to open my network places and browse the entire network, this functionallity seems to have gone. "You may not have permission to use this network resource"
it's perticuly annoying as some software i need to deploy needs me to be able to browse and select the machine names..
Hope that makes sense, if not i'll reword it over the weekend as my brain has gone to mush...
It's worth checking that Windows Firewall isn't enabled anywhere... it caused me no end of grief and it was only on 3 machines.
well without more detail its going to be hard to pinpoint your issue but I have some things that can help.
1. I spent probably 6 hrs with microsoft one time fixing a 10 minute issue, make sure that nothing is handing out wins, it will cause the issue your having, check your router or dhcp server if using one.
2. make sure dns is working properly
3. Post any messages error log is giving you.
4.Did update your anti virus recently, symantec endpoint has caused some issues like this.
Hope this helps, post some more details
Thanks for your suggestions...
mactech03.. going to try your ones today as i think it may be symantec endpoint... its that which i am trying to deploy..
I've been on a call to Microsoft for the last few days trying to figure out what was causing our mapped drives on our Application server to drop off... Symantec was causing that also..
Looks like i'm going to have to update all our servers with the MR2 patch.

Running 'netdiag' may also reveal the source of the problem.
I had a similar issue once whereby a user object and computer object were in different OUs with different policies set. Moving the computer object under the same OU as the user object solved the problem, as they were using the same policies and not conflicting policies.
I had network browsing issues with symantec and symantec told me if I felt that the companies hardware firewall was decent to just uninstall the network protection component or disable through policy in symantec endpoint admin. I opted to completely uninstall but I can not remember the exact steps, it was a little tricky. I would recomend giving symantec a ring and ask them how to uninstall the network protection component (if you have a decent hardware firewall). I really wish I could help some more but its been a while since i have had to deploy endpoint.
