Windows 7: Power Outages, Then no Samba Connectivity

24 Aug 2011   #1

Power Outages, Then no Samba Connectivity

Night before power went out twice, there was no network issues, everything was recognized normally and I had connection with windows explorer. However now it doesn't allow any regular connectivity (by that I mean I can use a third party program jftp and it finds/opens the samba shares correctly, but that doesn't have integration in a way that I need.

I have tried several registry fixes from several forums, as well as rebooting each system, and the entire network several times and there has been no resolution.

Using 'net use \\' nets a result of 'The specified network name is no longer available' however it can still successfully ping (and SSH) to the box.

Windows explorer spews out 0x80004005 error unspecified and has turned up nothing useful after a couple hours of googling.

The server -does- show on the network places but when clicked it says the path is not valid.


- yes the setting for encryption is set, I had to solve that 2 or so weeks ago when I set it up.

My guess is the abrupt shutdown corrupted some critical file. I probably would start with a SFC /scannnow.
