I am having a problem accessing .exe on 1 of my servers.  I have 1
share called Apps that is programs housed on the server, up until
2weeks ago I had no problems with installing applications using this
share, but now everytime I try to download these apps to another server
I get the error message "Windows cannot access the specified device,
path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access
the item."  The interesting part of this problem is that I can access
and download these .exe on the server that houses the share or our 40
workstations but not on my 4 outher servers (DC,Exchange 2003, WSUS &
SQL 2000).  I did an Ethereal capture and this is the message I got.
SMB protocol Trans 2 Request, Query Path info, Query File Basic Info,
Path: \Panasonic\Panasonic UF-9000.  I have checked my DC GPO
(Microsoft Network Client (always) & (if client agrees)  Digitally sign
communication policy settings are enabled)

Has anybody ever seen this before and if so can you give me an idea on
how to fix this problem.

Thanks in advance,
