Specs: Windows Storage server 2008
Hey All,

I hav a Network area storage server where all my files are stored. The Folders are shared on the network the shared folders were working fine but suddenly i was unable to access these folders .I tried to Map the network drives by IP address that is ""\\ipaddress\share\""of the NAS server but was unable to do so. It Gave me an error message ""No Logon Servers are currently available"" . But when i put my server Name that is ""\\servername\share\ "" i am able to map the folders.
Can any one please tell me why am i unable to access my shared folders on the NAS server by IP address . I have checked the IP adress connectivity and everything but it is all fine .I can even ping by ip address of the NAS server .

Well, I noticed immediately your server and client have different DNS addresses.

On your server you show the DNS/DC address is 192.168.50.3

On your clients you show DNS/WINS as being 192.168.50.43

Clients with those DNS IP's are going to have issues authenticating to the domain which in turn could lead to issues accessing domain resources.

We'll need to see the ouput of the ipconfig command from both a PC and the server.

Open a command prompt window (ie: Start >> Run >> type cmd and hit Enter) and perform the following command:

ipconfig /all

Once you've finished, copy/paste the output into a response on here so we can have a look.

For info on how to copy/paste from a command prompt window click on my name above and read my "how-to" guide titled, "Post the output of ipconfig (version 2)"

Do label each output correctly as to where it came from

I had made a mistake in entering while changing the lan port.But I when this problem occurred in my old port all the settings where fine and suddenly all the Shared drives on the server were not working and it was showing "" limited or low connectivity"" . Still trying to figure out why this problem occured.

Any ways thankx a lot mate for all your help and support. Cheers!!
