    I've got Vista Beta 2 Business edition loaded on my pc it is joined to an AD
    Domain and seems to function fine, My one problem is I can't seem to make a
    connection to my file shares on our Network Applicance FAS930 filer. I can
    see the filer on the network among other servers but when I try to attach to
    it by double clicking an explorer window opens briefly then closes. If I try
    to map a drive again I can see the NetApp Filer but when I click on it there
    are no shared drives and the button to connect is grayed out.

    Any ideas?

  2. Can you please send me the output of these :
    1) net view <NETAPP_FILER>
    2) net use m: <NETAPP_FILE>\Share /user:<DOMAIN>\<USERNAME>
    enter password : <...>
    3) dir m: (if step(2) works)

    Also, if you can take a network capture using netmon or ethereal, please
    send it across.

    OK new bug, netmon doesn't run on Vista either can't fine the npptool.dll, I
    tried copying the file from my XP partition and registering it but it didn't
    recognize it as a dll, downloading ethereal (a slow download will send when

    I ran the net view command and got the System error 87. I ran the same
    command from my Vista Wksta against another server and got good results
    below. I ran the net view command against the filer from a server and got
    good results also.

    The net view command run on the filer called "oasrv3" and against a windows
    2003 R2 server named "netsrv14"

    D:\>net view oasrv3
    System error 87 has occurred.

    The parameter is incorrect.
