I am trying to use WinPE to apply an image from a network share and regularly run into an issue, sometimes I can resolve this with a ipconfig /release then /renew.
What the issue is:
When the cmd prompt comes up i would normally use net use \\server\folder command to connect to a network folder but, without the connection - specific dns suffix being my domain, i cannot connect to it although i can ping the server. How can i get the DNS suffix to connect to the network. The drivers for the laptop are fine, reason I can pick up a connection and ping the server.
How can I rectify this?
Thanks in advance

OK, so if anyone else is having this problem I found another work-around rather than the standard ipconfig /release /renew.
If you can PING your server like I could, get the ip address and use that instead, for instance;
This work-around worked for me, it seems like a DNS issue, but is looking like it is because of the DNS suffix not picking up my network as it works every time with that being correct.
Could be wrong about the cause, but at least here is a way around it.
