A Windows Vista-based or Windows Server 2008-based computer that shares some files and some folders may not respond to file share requests
Consider the following scenario:
- You have a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008.
- You share some files or some folders on the computer.
- Some users try to access the shared files or the shared folders from remote computers.
In this scenario, the computer that shares the files and the folders may temporarily not respond to file share requests. When this issue occurs, users cannot enumerate the shared files or the shared folders on the computer.
Note: The computer that shares the files and the folders resumes responding to requests for shared resources after 4 minutes.
