sysadmin windows


A few windows tips and notes

Error "80004005" when connecting to a network drive

if you can ping (but uses IPv6) and access it through web interface, but Windows Explorer gives "80004005" error, disable IPv6 and flush dns cache by launching from cmd:

1 ipconfig /flushdns

Given that everyone keeps giving ipv6 literal .net, I guess SMB in windows can't ipv6

but might be a protocol mismatch in some cases: try disabling SMB 1.0 (archive)
