WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Change management in IT is critical. But, even with a good change management process, changes are too often not correctly tracked, if at all. The configuration of your servers and applications is a key factor in their performance, availability, and security. Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

Error 53: Network path was not found

Updated May 31, 2017

Overview

The following error is displayed when accessing DameWare Remote Support tools and Exporter:

Error 53: Network path was not found

Environment

All Dameware Remote Support (DRS) versions

Resolution

Perform any of the following resolutions:

  • Verify that File & Printer Sharing option is enabled on the remote machine.
  • Make sure that all the needed File & Printer Sharing ports are open on all routers and/or firewalls between the local and remote machines, and in any type of firewall software on the remote machine. 
  • Confirm that the operating system (OS) is properly configured with regards to Names Resolution. This is important because DameWare software uses the OS for all Names Resolution. For example, open a command prompt, and then ping the remote machine by its hostname. 
  • Enable NetBios (such as NetBIOS over IP (NetBT/WINS), NetBIOS over IPX, among others.). 
  • For DameWare NT Utilities (DNTU) or DameWare Remote Support (DRS) event log, properties, processes, registry, services, or software views, verify that the Remote Registry Service is enabled and is started on the remote machine.
    Note: This service is not started by default under Vista.
