Error 53. Network path cannot be found. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a number of Motorola MC65 devices running Windows CE 6.5.3 Pro. They are running some custom software that manages the scanning and uploads files to a network share. These devices are on numerous remote sites so I am not able to see them physically.

    Yesterday devices on one site stopped transferring their files although they still have connection to the network. I talked them through checking the log in the application and it was reporting "Error 53" when trying to copy the files to the network share.

    I grabbed a spare unit in the office and found my test device is doing the same thing, which is good from a testing point of view. Strange thing is I have quite a few devices still out there working fine and they are all setup the same. Same software revision, same device firmware and same credentials to connect to the share.

    I have tested to see if the device can resolve the server name and it can.

    I have ping tested from the device to the server and it responds ok.

    I have tried to "Open Path" in file explorer to the share (and other shares) using name and IP. These all fail with network path cannot be found.

    I have been told that no network changes have been made.

    Scratching my head now hoping somebody else might have encountered this at some point in the past.
