While connecting Windows 7 client PC with Win 2003 DC through Remote Desktop, the PC does not find the server name in the explorer and returns the message after some delay “Windows cannot access \ServerName. The IP address and domain can be pinged fine. Is Win 7 Client supporting the connection with Win 2003 or are there any other recommended settings for connecting with my Win 2003 DC?
Windows 7 client could not connect to Win 2003 DC on remote
You didn't give a plain explanation of your error message, however I will try to guess what is the problem. This issue may be caused because of a firewall, try to temporarily disable firewall and check again. If this didn't help you then you need to use the win 7 machine as a file server and so it should allocate resources accordingly.
Try to set this registry key to 1: HKLMSYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlSession ManagerMemory MangementLargeSystemCache. And this registry too needs to be set to 3: HKLMSYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesLanmanServerParametersSize.
After making these changes you should restart your machine. Try to create the same scenario that made the error message again and hopefully you will find it solved.
Hope this may help you.
Best of luck.
