I have Vista Business SP1, and ZoneAlarm Security Suite version 8.0.059.000. The Vista system is part of an SBS 2003 network.
The problem I'm running into is this: Occasionally (about every 3 or 4 boots), I cannot access the mapped network drive, or the server by \\SERVERNAME. When double-clicking on the network drive nothing happens (it just sits there forever). When I try to get to the server using \\SERVERNAME, I receive the following error message:
\\SERVERNNAME is not accessible. You might not have permissions to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The specified network name is no longer available.
The odd thing is, I can still access the server using the IP address so it seems to be a DNS issue. I think it's related to ZoneAlarm because I never had this happen before I installed ZoneAlarm. A reboot usually fixes it, but this happens every few days so it's quite annoying. I've tried ipconfig /flushdns and that doesn't solve it.
The network and server IP are in the Trusted zone. Any other ideas?
