Unable to map drive to UNIX server. The specified server cannot perform the requested

Q: Unable to map drive to UNIX server. The specified server cannot perform the requested

I'm trying to map a drive from an XP client to a UNIX server, but I receive the following error message:

The mapped network drive could not be created because the following error has occurred:
The specified server cannot perform the requested operation.

The share on the UNIX server is mapped successfully by other PCs, both XP and Windows 7, so the problem must be on the client side.

Any suggestions?

Preferred Solution: Unable to map drive to UNIX server. The specified server cannot perform the requested

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi folks,
I have some weirdness going on here and it's wrecking my head. I have a customer with a small network landscape. 1 server, 1 OU, Windows 2012 standard with 20 CALS. They only have 8 machines at the moment. 1 laptop was wiped out by ransomware. Scanned/cleaned
the server and all clients.  I did a clean install of Windows 7 Ent. on the laptop, but when I try to join it to the domain, I get this "The specified server cannot perform the requested operation" error.  I have removed the machine from
AD and DNS, and renamed the machine (all in separate operations). Verified that DNS is working properly with ipconfig and nslookup. I can join other machines to the domain without any problem (my service laptop native OS and two VMs on the laptop). Can't find
anything of value in the event logs of the server or the client.  Can't find anything in support searches that don't relate to DNS errors or server replication errors.  I don't have DNS/DHCP errors, and there is no replication.
Many thanks,

Tim in Dublin

I am having this weird error message when trying to copy files from a SMB server over the nerwork to my local computer. 
This is not related to file name length: files with longer names copy successfully.
This is not related to file size: error happens even with files with less than 1MB.
The error only shows up when trying to paste from network to a local exFAT volume. 
If I try to paste on a NTFS volume the copy is successful. 
Telling the system to 'try again' never works, trying to copy again also does not work. Also it does not happen on every file, but when it happens to a file, it's consistent, happens every time to that file.

A:Error 0x8007003A - The specified server cannot perform the requested operation - copy from SMB share to ExFAT local disk

To get more information, I suggest you use process monitor to find the culprit, you can refer to this similar case:

Are scsi Hot swappable or should I power down the server before replacing a failed SCSI Tape Drive? Thanx for any help!!!

A:unix server tape drive scsi

Most SCSI devices are NOT hot-swappable! I really doubt your tape drive is. There are RAID arrays with how swap capability, but something like a tape drive is very unlikely to be how-swappable. Normally, the SCSI devices are initialized during the POST.

This came in to thought of mine. Now i know this is probably not related about anything with Windows 7 but i just thought i might ask. What are the comparisons between the two and what are the differences? Both operating systems deal with networking and workgroups along with clients and work stations. I am a bit familiar with Windows Server 2003/2007 and how you can use operating systems like XP, Vista, and 7 to be part of the workgroup with the server that has Server 2003 (for XP) and Server 2007 (for Vista/7). If i am wrong in anyway, please do correct me. Thanks.

I have a print server running 2003 standard sp2, I have been looking for a way to allow helpdesk staff install and manage printers without logging into the server and without adding them to the admin group.

So I added them to the power users group and the print operators group, that worked fine they were able to UNC ( \\servername ) to the server and install printers, drivers, as well as uninstall drivers? printers ect????.
Now the problem??? this works great from an XP box, but when we try it from a windows 7 machine we get access denied. More specifically it acts like it is going to install the printer then when it comes to the driver installation part it fails ?Printer driver was not installed. Access is denied.?

No changes have been made to the permissions I can log into an XP machine with my profile and it works fine log out go to a Windows 7 machine use the same credentials and I get the above message access is denied. I am an admin of both machines on the windows 7 machine I have UAC turned off completely. Running XP Pro SP3 & Windows 7 pro both are 32 bit machines.

I should also add that I have made the necessary group policy changes to allow printer operators to Load/Unload device drivers and under the local policies/security options I ensured that the Prevent users from installing printer drivers was Disabled.

Any help would be much appreciated.

How do you enter the credentials on the Windows 7 machine? I've noticed that you have to use "domain\username" rather than just the username in some cases.

afternoon everyone

i have a problem at work with my email. it says that it has an error with my send/receive. i can send emails but cannot receive them. the error says the connection to the server was interrupted. but i can send email and go on the internet and access files on the server. so its just the receiving.
i tested the connection in the outlook options and everything is working according to outlook. the server is a unix one. it also gives me an error if i try to access my account through the internet on unix. i cant view them. but when our administrator goes on to my account through the net he can see my emails that i have received. so what can i do? is it a problem with the server or just my account?

XP Pro SP2, all latest updates. When I reboot, I can correctly sync to a time server, but after an unknown amount of time it goes back to saying "The RPC server is unavailable" instantly after clicking Update Now, regardless of what server I tell it to sync to. I also noticed that if I view my nForce Networking Controller status, then click Properties and go to the Authentication tab, everything is greyed out. If I hit OK without changing anything (I can't change it even if I wanted to), a message pops up saying "An unexpected condition occured. Not all of your requested changes in settings could be made" and just goes back to that window. I have to hit cancel to close it. These two issues seem to be related since right after I reboot, the Authentication tab works normally (as well as the time sync like I mentioned above), and they both seem to stop working at the same time. I have no idea if it happens after something I run or if it's just after a certain amount of time or what. Any ideas?

This may be a very stupid question, but can't think of the logical answer. Let's say I have a Win2k print server and both Windows and Unix clients that need to print to the HP printers.

Now would it be possible to have a unix print server as well? Or no, because the two print queues would not know about each other, so what would happen when a windows client prints to printer1 the same time a unix client does?

Or is there a way to set up the unix clients to print through the Windows print server?

We also have a samba server in our network if that changes things?


A:Unix and Windows clients printing to a Win2k Print Server?

If you run samba on the clients, you can send to Windows print queues. I don't have any links on hand, but check out http://www.linuxdocs.org for a how-to.

This afternoon, the users suddenly unable to map the department drive no matter using the IP address, i.e. \\\department, or using the server name, i.e. \\server1\department.  Also, unable to print (printer server is same as the department
driver server).
The file server is Windows Server 2008 R1, running on Hyper-V, equipped with 2 NICs, the second NIC IP address is, i.e.  
When ping the server host name, i.e. ping server1, it resolved as; at the same time, we are still able to ping the primary NIC card's IP address,
The problem was resolved by disabling the DNS registration of the secondary NIC on the department server.  Once it is disabled, the users were able to map the department drive by using IP, i.e. \\\department.
However, until now, the ping result of the host name is still resolved the secondary NIC card's IP address.
May I know who can explain the reason?  I really have no idea, why can't map drive and print by the primary NIC card's IP address without disable the DNS registration on the secondary NIC.

I appear to be the victim of some piece of malware or virus that has added a proxy server setting that I am unable to get rid of. The main symptoms are that I am unable to change my proxy server settings in Windows 10. It appears to use this setting http=;. The result of this is that I am unable to do searches in the omnibar of Google Chrome (just takes me to a blank page) and I can't visit certain webpages, also if I am able to do a Google search the "Search Tools" button is missing.
I looked around on the internet and have tried a few fixes, I've deleted or changed the registry entries mentioned in Philip Turner's reply here: https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/446898-can-t-disable-proxy-in-ie10?page=1
I also changed the entry mentioned here: https://fixedit.itxpress.biz/2014/10/08/unable-to-disable-windows-proxy-setting/
Making these changes allowed me to change the proxy server settings and once I change "Automatically detect settings" to on and "Use a a proxy server" to off then the issue is fixed and everything behaves normally. 
The problem is, once I restart my computer the settings revert back and are again unable to be changed unless I delete/change all the above registry entries again. I'm pretty sure that whatever did this is still on my computer somewhere and I need some help finding and eliminating it. Either that, or there is still some hidden registry entry that I am unable to find.

I have a problem to access file server on Windows Server 2000 from a Windows 7 PC. For your information, due to some reasons, both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are in different domain.

I have tried all suggested solutions which are :
i. to unchecked both attributes in 'Network Security : Minimum session security for NTLM SSP based (including secure RPC)' for both clients and server.
ii. to apply 'Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated' in 'Network Security : LAN Manager authentication level'
iii. to make sure the time setting for both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are the same.

But still, i couldn't access the file server. In fact, each time I entered domain\username to authenticate, it will give out this message :

Since I am kinda new to this troubleshooting things, it would be great if someone can tell me why does this happening. Is it because of the different domain?

thanks in advance.

A:Windows 7 unable to Access file server on Windows Server 2000

To connect to the server you would need to enter the credentials of the domain user on the server that would have access. For example if the domain was 'home' with a user 'Josh' then I would put:


As the username. If you want to get advanced you could try and form a trust with the other domain in active directory so that the other domain has permission to access the server

Again, sorry if I posted this on the wrong section...

Anyway, in the beggining of the year I got the infamous malware that infected many PC's worldwide (can't remember the name) and got my action center completely destroyed. I eventually fixed it, by adding the Security Center service that was gone, but one issue still remains: the action center system tray icon is greyed out, and impossible to turn back on!

I searched online, and the most common solution i've found was to run the sfc /scannow command. So I did, and for some reason it stops at 69% and after about a minute stuck at that number it says: "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation" I tried multiple times, but the same error happens every time. So I searched for this error, and not a single solution i've found worked (and i've only found like 2 solutions).

How can I fix this error, without re-installing the OS? Or is this only solved that way?

Thank you for your time.

A:sfc /scannow stops at 69% ...could not perform the requested operation

Hello Kratos,

Since malware/virus was involved, you might consider doing a clean reinstall of Windows 7 to help make sure you are fully clean. You just never know what may still be lingering around.

Usually when you get the Windows Resource Protection Could Not Start the Repair Service error, check to make sure that the Windows Modules Installer service is enabled and set to Manual.Services - Start or Disable

You might see if using the tutorial below may be able to help enable the Action Center system icon.System Icons - Enable or Disable

Over the past few weeks I have experienced several interesting problems between my two computers. Of particular note was an issue I discovered when the Event Viewer on my Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit machine failed. After some troubleshooting I decided to attempt
SFC /scannow. I got the error message "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation." This worried me. So I attempted to boot into WinRE from my Win 7 installation disk. The result in WinRE was the same. No good.
I scrounged forum after forum looking for an answer, but nothing worked. It seemed like everyone just gave up and reinstalled their OS, but I would not do that. So I kept exploring. CBS.log showed nothing of interest as sfc never made it past "Beginning
verification phase of system scan."
Finally I found this article:
http://www.updatexp.com/scannow-sfc.html which, while interesting and comprehensive, did not directly solve my issue. It did, however, point me to the registry key:
This registry entry does not appear to exist in Win 7, but another entry in it's vicinity caught my attention:

You could download and reinstall the ISO from https://www.microsoft.com/software-download/windows10 and then click on 'Download tool now' near the bottom of the webpage...follow the prompts.

Windows Modules Installer is ON and Manual, but still, no result. Tried using that startup repair recovery method uselessly too.

Long story short, I had some problems with my computer slowly starting to be unable to open certain programs (Steam,Battle.Net Launcher,Certain internet sites) and so I put a ticket into chrome and blizzard. Blizzard had the best response and it ended with them telling me, "According to your MSinfo, I see that the launcher is having all kinds of problems and even crashes out often. When I looked into the details of these crashes, I see that the loaded module is Kernelbase.dll (dont worry, Ill explain). After doing some research on this Dynamic Link Library (.dll file), I see that this file is associated to some essential processes contained within Windows and may hint at User Profile Data Corruption." He then starts to inform me how I can combat this, "Run Microsoft's System File checker! & Create a new admin user" I ran "sfc /scannow" got up to 26% and then was told, "windows resource protection cannot perform the requested operation" I'm at a lost.

I'm running windows 7 32bit, I just now begun noticing problems with my computer when the windows update service kept displaying the same updates and never would search for new updates, so I ended up forcing it to search and I got the the dreaded 80073712 error code, Done some searching on the Microsoft website tried their fix it stuff which normally does work, this time nothing worked. so tried to run a sfc scan through command prompt as admin and I got the "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation before the scan even started. 
Please help me!

I saw another thread with this title however I am starting a new one because my issue is a tad bit different.

I am trying to run the ?sfc /scannow /OFFBOOTDIR=f:\ /OFFWINDIR=f:\Windows\? (obviously without the quotes) and getting an error - Windows resource protection could not perform the requested operation.

my situation is rather unique though - I am using a PE disc to run this after using another application that allows me to unlock the enterprise encryption that is on the actual hard drive - the reason being is that the machine is booting to the E drive (the recovery partition) and not the windows partition which is the C drive - but technically the F drive in the PE explorer window.

I am currently working with the encryption vendor but thought I'd reach out and see if anyone had any suggestions while I wait and wait and wait and wait!

A:SFC error: "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation

Hi, not entirely sure what you are up to, if you are running a sfc offline then you are most likely accessing the windows RE (repair your computer) option from a command prompt.

At the x sources prompt first type (in red)

bcdedit | find "osdevice" (exactly as shown here)

Press enter, whatever drive letter is returned use in your sfc offline cmd, you first have to change to that directory (assume f:) at the x sources type:-

F: (press enter) at the F: prompt type your sfc cmd.

If this still gives an error at the f: prompt type:- (in red)

fsutil resource setautoreset true %systemdrive%\

Press enter, you should receive a success message, try the sfc cmd now.

I get this window now when I sync my PDA with Windows Mobile Device Center in Win7 64bit:
There is no email program associated to perform the requested action. Please install an email program or, if one is already installed, 
create an association in the Default Programs control panel.

When I first stared syncing, everything was fine... this is a very recent install. It synced fine before I installed Office 2007, including Outlook. After I installed Office it
synced fine too, but then I realized that I could sync with Google and decided that I didn't need Outlook at all on my system... I just used it for syncing and backing up my
Contacts anyway. After I uninstalled Outlook, I started getting this pop up whenever I put my PDA into its cradle... even though I have all email and contact syncing turned off locally...
Google is used as a fake Exchange server and it syncs fine that way... after reading some forums, I installed Live Mail onto my system, hoping that having an
email program installed would make it self default, but alas that is not the case. Everything in the Control Panel Default programs seems to be ok, and Live Mail is
my default email program... what else am I missing here? Thank you!
