Windows cannot access \\testpc
Error Code: 0x800704cf

If your system is a workstation joined with local domain controller and you are getting above (same) error while trying to access ANY shared resource/system on the network, then you may try following fix. This error gave me straight 1 hour headache, so I really don’t want anyone else to bang their head on the wall for the same.

Fix >     :~)

  • Open (Currently active) Network Adapter properties,
  • UNCHECK the ‘Client for microsoft Networks‘  / OK
  • Open Regedit, & Navigate to “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetBT\Parameters”
  • Create a new key with following parameters

Type: DWORD Value
Name: SMBDeviceEnabled
Data: 1

  • Once Done, Restart your computer, & MAKE SURE TO ENABLE THE ‘CLIENT FOR MICROSOFT NETWORK’ in the adapter settings.

Now check and hopefully you will be able to access the shared resources without any error.

TIP/Additional Commands

  • ipconfig /flushdns
  • nbtstat -RR
  • netsh int ip reset
  • netsh winsock reset

Regard’s
