I have a Macbook that suddenly lost connection to a Window server, specially the window shares.
Mac is running OSX Sierra.
I can ping the server by IP Address and if I ping the entire name including the domain so "SERVERNAME.DOMAINNAME.LOCAL" but not "SERVERNAME".
We have rebooted the server and macbook.
We have turned off the firewall, no affected so turned it back on.
Macbook is on the WIFI and WIFI DNS is configured to point to the SERVER and also added to WINS.
I do see other desktops randomly showing up and disappearing on the NETWORK ICON list. If I try changing the workgroup in the WINS section, it affects what desktops/machines I see on the network on the Mac, I just don't see the window server listed there.
Any ideas why I can't connect to the server or even see it in the finder anymore.
Server is Windows server 2012.
Nothing was changed on either end that I am aware of.
I am unable to mapped the shares manually either by servername or IP address in "go to server" on the mac using SMB://
