Weird issue I struggled with today – I tried to map a network share from domain joined 2012 R2 server and I was thrown with “path not found” error. So I tried to ping fileserver – host not found, DNS issue? Nothing like that – nslookup worked, host was found and of course host was visible on the network from all other devices.
I was looking for an network configuration issue for like an hour without any better results. Finally I ended up with resetting network configuration as follows:
netsh winsock reset catalog // Reset WINSOCK to default configuration
netsh int ip reset reset.log // Reset TCP/IP stack to default configuration
ipconfig /flushdns // Flush DNS cache
route /f // Flush routing table
