I have a local network setup using a standard 192.168.1.x range. there's no domain involved. there is no hardware firewall involved - only an unmanaged switch.
there are 4 machines on this subnet - Win7, Synology NAS, Server 2008 R2, Server 2003
i have 2 shared folders on the NAS which can be accessed easily by the Win7 and Server 2003 machines, but not by the R2 machine. fwiw, the R2 machine can access shares on both the Win7 and 2003 machines, just not the NAS.
When i try to map a network drive (a shared folder on the NAS) through Windows Explorer on the R2 box, i type in the appropriate creds, and about 10 seconds later, the credentials box pops up again (over and over.) If i try to use cmd to map the drive, i get "System error 58 has occurred. The specified server cannot perform the requested operation." Also, Synology has a product called the Synology Assistant. Within this program, i can [try to] map a drive using their wizard. This results in the same Error 58. I've contacted Synology support, and they were unable to rectify the issue.
Again, the win7 and 2003 boxes can access the shared folders on the NAS. The 2008 R2 box cannot.
After searching the internet for a fix, nothing has worked for me. I've tried uninstalling MSE, numerous Group Policy settings, numerous registry tweaks. i've also disabled the windows firewall and tried various tweaks to the network adapter's properties. nothing has worked.
I'm not sure where else to go w/ this.
