New phone systems where installed a few days ago and everything got a new IP and now uses a new ethernet port. All network drive connections where cut. I managed to restore the network drive to all the Windows 10 machines that do not use profiles.
The windows XP machines use roaming profiles and none of them are able to connect to the shared network drive. Trying to restore it gives "The network folder specified is currently mapped using a different user name and password" if I use administrator name and password.
Otherwise using normal log on information instead gives "network path could not be found".
I tried ipconfig /release then /renew.
I removed the the network drives with net use K: /del and then tried to remap them.
Did not work.
I am having a problem installing the network printer on the server as well. It simply will not install it despite seeing it and being able to give the print test page command which it will not complete. It gives the error that printer can not be installed. I used a different method to install it by using the TCP/IP address and it worked except it has to be as a copy of the printer. I can see this installed printer in the printers and devices folder but I can not see the non copy version. The non copy version is there because it blocks me from naming the copy version as the original yet I can not select the original.
