CIFS - specified network name is no longer available

Server is NW 6.5 sp7. When I browse from my WinXP PC I can see my
Server-W listed. If I double click on the server, I do not get a login
prompt, but after awhile the message comes up:

"\\Server-w is not available. You might not have permission to use this
nework resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if
you have access permissions. The specified network name is no longer
availble."

On the server if I type cifs share I only see IPC$, not _ADMIN, SYS,
VOL1. I have created a SYS share in iManger, and a Test share pointing
to sys:temp, but this hasn't helped.

How do I get to attach to the SYS share??

Re: CIFS - specified network name is no longer available

Have you added your user's context into cifsctxs.cfg on the server? If that's OK, enable NMAS tracing on the server and see what's actually happening in the connection attempt.

cifsctxs.cfg shows the proper OU=orgunit.O=org for the context that the
server is in. I'm not actually getting a login prompt to put in the
username and password for the user.

If I do dstrace -all +nmas screen on I don't see any activity at all. I
put \\server-w in an explorer box on my computer and wait, but nothing
comes up on the DSTRACE screen, and finally I get a message on my PC
saying "Windows cannot find \\server-w. Check the spelling and try again."

What can I try next?

Re: CIFS - specified network name is no longer available

Reading the post after mine about CIFS, I noticed cifsstrt.ncf
mentioned, and remembered that I had only typed cifs.nlm to start up
cifs on my server. So...

I typed in cifsstrt and now everything works. <blush> See what happens
when you only look at something every year or so?!?

Thanks for the help.

Is it really OU=orgunit.O=org? If so, it should be orgunit.org

Hope this helps.
