I have a number of SMB shares on FreeNAS that have been working fine for quite some time. They are mapped to drive letters on my main Windows 8.1 machine.
Recently, overnight something is happening (I don’t know what) and the shares are no longer accessible on the Windows machine. I get a red cross next to the share and an error message saying that the local name already exists.
If I reboot the FreeNAS box all is then okay.
I am running the latest updates for both FreeNAS and Windows 8.1.
Anyone got any idea why this is happening and how to fix it?
If I put the Windows machine to sleep it doesn’t seem to happen but it does seem to happen over night but I’m not sure if it happens every night.
