[Samba] The network path was not found.

More information:  I attempted to connect to the server via \\
ad.redacted.com\Test.  The diagnose button shows this:

Problems found

file and price resource( auth.ad.redacted.com) is online but isn't
responding to connection attempts.

I grabbed Active Directory Explorer from sysinternals, and was able to
explore the directory using the Administrator account.


Again, sorry for misusing the reply button.
