Okay, I got a weird issue.

I have a computer, when a user click the network drive it cannot display the contents of the shared path its pointing to. But the computer can ping the servername. However when I remap the network drive using IP address of the server, it can enumerate the files and folders in the shared path.

 

Any Ideas?

Sounds like a DNS issue mate, is this being mapped through DFS name space or just the server name with share (\\server01\share\data\)

I do not think its a dns issue, because like I said. The computer can ping the servername (it resolves to a correct IP)

well there  are three methods by which you can find your network drive:

  • open computer to display your connected  drives
  • click Map network drive.The option will appear on the top horizontal of the menu bar.
  • Select a Drive letter .The letter is there to select the drive present on the network.
