I have two Vista 32 bit (1 x home premium and 1 x home basic) PC's in my office that I am having problems with. When I browse the network I can see the MBWE listed but when I select it I'm prompted to authenticate even though it has public shares. From my own Vista Home Premium PC it automatically shows me the shares.
When I map a drive to a private share on the MBWE from either of the two PC's it maps the drive fine and allows me to access the private share and all public shares also. The problem I have is that when the user logs off the PC and relogs I get the error “Unable to reconnect network drive” and the mapped drive is not connected.
I have tried disabling the Firewall, changing the Lmcompatability (from 3 to both 1 and 2), and making sure the user is logged into the MBWE using the workgroup/username method.
Both PC's are brand new builds, 1 is straight out the box.
Has anyone else seen or had this problem I'm starting to pull my hair out!
