  • Hi,

    Do you access from Windows Server 2008 or access network drive on Windows Server 2008?

    If you access network drive which was shared on Windows Server 2008, please help to collect the following information for research.

    1.    Could anyone else access or map the "network drive"?
    2.    Are all systems in Domain?
    3.    If they’re in Domain, do you have administrative right on "network drive" server?
    4.    If you have administrative right, please try to edit the network drive permission: Right-click the "network drive", choose Properties, switch to Permission, was your user or the group to which your user belong listed? If not, click Add button to add your user to the list and give as least Read right.

    5.    If the issue continues, please download Microsoft Product Support's Reporting Tools (MPSRPT_NETWORK.EXE).

    After collecting, please use Windows Live SkyDrive (http://www.skydrive.live.com/) to upload the files and then give me the download address.
