I have a Windows 7 machine that logs into a domain. The machine can net view and see the different shares, but when I try to use,
net use * \\name\share, I get an error stating that the service is not started. Yet when I issue a net start, it states the service is already started. My other win7 machines work fine; they can see and use any of the shares.
Is there a security setting that needs to be disabled or enabled? I really need to get this working, and I have no other ideas as the other machines have no problem accessing the shares on different systems.
The error I am getting is , "The Workstation Service Has Not Been Started", but like I said other machines can connect fine, and when I issue a, "net start workstation", it states the service is already started. In addition the error number I am receiving is 2138.
UPDATE: On the machine that is having issues.
From the troubled machine if I issue a
Net View \\name
I can see all the shares on the machine I want to connect to. When I try to
net use * \\name\sharename
I get the error The Workstation service has not started.
I have set both settings
sc config lanmanworkstation start = auto
sc config lanmanserver start = auto
on the Windows7 computer that is having issues. I have rebooted the computer and still no dice. I can net view any computer on the network and see all shares, but I cannot access any of the shares in which I can see.
In the registry under the HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services
Both LanmanServer and LanmanWorkstation start is set to 2.

This is really weird. What am I missing? It has to be a security setting...
