Deployment of a Windows 2008 R2 x 64 file server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I put together a server with Windows 2008 R2 x64. It is simply being installed on a LAN in a small business setting to place files on. I was able to connect it to the LAN and get all Windows 7 computers to map to the drive. However when I attempt to map a Windows XP machine, the xp machine can see the server but when I click on the server drive it just gives me an hour glass then stops but will not map to it. Does anyone have any ideas? I turned off the firewall and shutdown the anti virus on the xp machine with no help. I also enabled and started Computer Browser Service on the server. Any help would greatly be appreciated.
