I have a NAS drive, and this is sharing some folders. I cannot access those folders from a windows 2008 machine which is on the network. The are both connected to the same network switch.
e.g. if I go like
I get the message:
windows cannot access \\server check the spelling, click diagnose
Error code: 0x80004005
The thing is that I can connect to this shared drive from a Windows 7 laptop connected wirelessly to the same network.
I can ping the server from windows 2008, but only if I use the IP address, not the server name.
If it is synology nas you might check your SMB version. On the synology go to [Control Panel] > [File Services] > [SMB/AFP/NFS]
The option [Enable SMB service] should be enabled. Click the [Advanced Settings] button.
In my case the "Maximum SMB protocol" and "Minimum SMB protocol" were set to SMB1. I changed the Maximum SMB protocol to SMB3 and now I can access the share perfectly from my Windows 10 pc.
