I have a laptop running Vista home premium in a network environment. Server is running Small Business Server 2003. For almost 3 years I have been able to utilize this machine on the network despite it being a home edition. I have a couple of mapped network drives that I would just have to provide network log-on credentials to access. However, starting today I am no longer able to access the network or server at all, even by manually browsing to the server using \\sbs1. When trying to manually browse to a network drive or the server, I get the error message #0x80070005 saying that Windows cannot access \\sbs1, etc. I can ping the server from a command prompt without problem. When I try accessing mapped networked drives, instead of being prompted for log-on credentials I get an "Access denied" message. For one mapped network drive, I do get prompted for credentials, however, no matter what I log in with (myself, which is an administrator account, or the administrator account) I get a message saying "Multiple Connections to a server or a shared resource by the same user, using more than one user name, are not allowed. Disconnect all previous connections to this resource and try again." I'm puzzled why I have had no problems for almost three years until today out of nowhere. I tried a System Restore to last week before this started occurring to no avail.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
