  • VM cannot access file share on the host

    I have a Win 2008 server running hyper-V and with file server role. The domain runs on Win 2003.
    The virtual machines, running 2003 do not have access to the file shares on their host server.
    Physical servers running 2003 and XP clients do have access to the file shares.

    I have no clue where the problem could come from. Did anybody already come across this problem?

    Thanks for your help

    Is networking OK on the VM?

      Can you access the VMs from a client machine?
