cannot access any shares, domain issues, event logs, event viewer, printer not shared, server 2003, SMB Errors
Whats one of the first things you should do if there is an issue with a PC or between a PC and a server? Check the obvious, then check the event viewer. If you don’t you can find yourself in a situation where you waste a lot of time looking for a solution when it will only come to you if you get the error message from event viewer… as with a client, SMB/Shares/Printing was all inaccessible from the server. I dropped the PC from the domain, re-added it, deleted the share, readded it, nothing seemed to work. But if I would have just checked the event logs I would have seen that it was a time issue between the server and workstation! Ah well we all say that hindsight is 20/20!
