Mapped drives and printers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Having am issue.

    Extended newtork across 2 switchs.  I can get to the AD across the new network, static ips work but I can't get mapped drives to show up or print servers already mapped to appear. 

    When I connect to any machine on the original network everything is working fine. Mapped drives and printers follow my account where ever I log in from

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

  • Sounds like firewalled ports. How is the network configured? VLANs, VPN, etc? Any rules blocking across them?

    I'm assuming you are only using your internal DC/DNS for resolution, meaning there are no ISP or the router as a DNS server address configured in the NICs.
