Win 10 networking
      #445718 - 12/10/17 05:33 PM

Here's a Windows networking problem that's been giving me fits since the switch to Win 10. There are four Win 10 hosts on my network: HELOISE, BOUDICCA, GILGAMESH and HIPPOLYTA. There is also a Linux/Samba host, ABELARD. All hosts are wired to a Netgear R7000 router except HELOISE which is on Wifi, and all can access the Internet without problems.

BOUDICCA, HELOISE and HIPPOLYTA can access the other two freely in Windows File Explorer. But GILGAMESH, while it sees all the host icons, can't access ABELARD or HIPPOLYTA. Clicking on them gives error 0x80070035, "network path not found".

Every host can ping every other host, by name or IP, and every Win host can Putty into ABELARD.

All the Win hosts are running the same Kaspersky installation, and turning its firewall off has no effect.

Googling the error number produces several pages of results, most of which come down to enabling NetBIOS over TCP/IP, which I've done without result.

Suggestions?

I'm no Windows networking expert.

How current is the SAMBA code on your Linux Host? I'm wondering if it is communicating using some older version of some Windows networking protocol?

The thing that always confused me about Windows networking is that some of it is layered on top of TCP/IP (most all of it now, as I understand) but in the old days, there was WINS networking, and NETBIOS, which often seemed to exchange the same information in different ways.

If it were me, I'd Google up something about turning off "older" networking on Windows 10 machines, just to help eliminate that as a source of confusion. I would also check out SAMBA with WIndows 10 to see if that requires any updates or tweaks.

The Samba code has been updated recently, and more important, it works fine with two of the Win hosts. Acronis is backing up BOUDICCA and HIPPOLYTA into Samba RAID shares just fine, but it fails from GILGAMESH.

Is GILGAMESH really a member of the correct workgroup/domain, or is there a
typo in the name?

Does the user ID on GILGAMESH have appropriate permissions for the shares on
the other machines? Are its user ID and password spelled the same as they
are on the share permissions lists on the other machines?

Yes, and it was functioning normally up to some time in the last month.

Yes. Same user is present on all hosts.

Additional items: Network Discovery and File Sharing are turned on on all hosts; likewise "Use user accounts and passwords". Name of the workgroup is the Win default, WORKGROUP.

When you say Windows 10, what version? Pro, Home, Basic?

There's a limit to the number of connections Windows will allow. I'm unable to find the limit on anything other than Pro, which is 20 connections. But that's for each thing, such as shared printers, file system, etc. I'm just wondering if you're exceeding the allowable connections.

Last idea from my aging brain: Might you have lost a network drive mapping
which was supposed to have been persistent? E.g. net use w: \\isolde\wagner
... /persistent:yes

I have one machine which has a batch script in its startup group. The first
thing the script does is map a non-persistent drive to sync itself with
another machine. Sometimes the networking doesn't come fast enough for the
script. Perhaps the DHCP client doesn't do its job quickly enough.
Rerunning the script manually right away fixes the problem.

Dunno how it looks on W10, but on my ancient home planet, My Network Places,
View, Refresh might offer a clue. For example, the other systems might
disappear when you do that.

GILGAMESH runs Pro, and can't hit the Linux box, so that seems not to be a factor. BOUDICCA runs Pro, HIPPOLYTA Home.

I don't do any active mapping at all; each Win host just uses its own C drive. But I think I'll experiment with net use this morning.

Sometimes a host will disappear from File Explorer after a reboot, and Refresh brings them back more quickly than just waiting, but doesn't alter anything.

Curiouser and curiouser...

OK, 50% success. A net use command cleared up the access from GILGAMESH to HIPPOLYTA, and that path is now OK. But the same didn't work for ABELARD, the Samba box:

net use \\abelard\ralph (from GILGAMESH)

produces a request for username and password, and it rejects the password I give. (Note: the Samba credentials are set the same as the logon credentials). Entering the same command from any other Win host sails right through.
