        Hi all

        I am getting the following error in Server 2016 “You might not have permission to use this network resource” when a client PC (Windows 10 Pro) tries to connect to any of the server folders. There are no stored “Credentials” and the fire wall is off. See enclosed image.

        There is 3 PC’s here on W10 and they have gotten this error on different days as they were rebooted.

        I don’t think it is a WU issue.

        Server-Error

        Thanks in advance,

        D..

        Is the server on a domain? If not, what username are you using to log in to the PCs with? This will get passed to the server while attempting to connect.

          thanks steevie

          Not on a domain.

          Not sure what you mean here “what username are you using to log in to the PCs with?”

          Should I tick / use the “Make Network Computers Visible in File Explorer option?
