I am having a bit of an issue with a 2003 server and a windows 7 workstation. I am trying to set up logon scripts to back up certain folders on the workstation to the server. But they are not talking properly. I can see the workstation in the network list, along with all the other workstations, however (unlike the other workstations) when I attempt to access it from the server I get the following error...
\\stationname is not accessible. You might not have permission...yadda yadda.
The workstation is able to see and access the server, and the server sees but is unable to access the workstation... I have checked the network discovery, file and print sharing, and so on and all looks well. I just don't know what else to try.
and does it even matter (for the xcopy script) that the server cant access the ws shares as long as the ws can access the servers? Or should I be double checking my scripting?

Have you tried to disable a firewall in workstation? also make sure server able to ping the workstation properly with hostname/Ip address.
Also post unedited ipconfig/all command output of workstation.

As Ravikumar suggested try disabling the firewall, if you got anti virus running as well please disabled it temporarily and check whether the server can access the workstation.
The workstation is running on windows 7 professional? or what?
Every second counts..make use of it.
