A long time ago i ran into a problem where Windows Server 2008 R2 loses the ability to connect to a network share on a Windows Server 2003.
Microsoft has now finally released a hotfix to the problem (KB2194664).
When the Windows Server 2008 R2 is restarted everything is working as it should. But after a while it can no longer connect to a network drive on a Windows Server 2003 server.
Sometimes I cannot map on the UNC name and sometimes I cannot map on the IP address.
When I cannot map the home drive on the UNC name I will get the following error:
System error 53 has occurred. "The network path was not found"
When I cannot map the home drive using the IP address I will get the following error:
System error 59 has occurred. "An unexpected network error occurred."
Back in January 2010 I started a tread on the MS forum describing the problem. It has now grown to be a large tread with 159 posts and over 16.000 views. More...
