  • IngoW - Thank you for sharing. That is good to know. We are planning on testing the 1809 roll out this summer, so if this is the permanent fix, that will be great!

    I did want to share a temporary fix that has gotten us by for now. You're right, it's a Windows issue, but it's also a Dell docking station issue. There appears to be a communication problem with the netbios between the dock and the Windows PC. I have no clue what I'm talking about beyond that, so that's all I'll say.

    I had all effected users run this fix siliently. https://github.com/filippobottega/ShareFix/blob/master/README.md They must be docked to their main docking station when they run it.

    It rebuilds the binding of the network adapter interface. Basically it fixes the communication between the Windows pc and the Dock Nic adapter. The only issue with this is when they use a different dock, it breaks the communication again. Luckily, it reconnects when they go back to their home dock. Maybe someone who knows what they are talking about can explain this better.

    We have 700 users and this issue was effecting around 100 of them, so it was substantial. I'll look forward to the 1809 update as well.

  • I'm going to also request this feature. In our Active Directory Attributes, we have Office Location, email address, physical address, and a few others. It would be nice to be able to run a report that shows what computers are in which office. We have 12 locations, so this would be helpful.

  • I am having this same problem with Dell 5570,80,and 90's on D6000 and WD15 docking stations. We have about 700 pc's, and around 50 of them are having this issue. This is one of our biggest hurdles of the program, before we commit. It seems that I am able to fix it temporarily by going into the properties of the Ethernet adapter, uninstalling the "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks" services, and then reinstalling it. The downside is that the next time the user reboots, it breaks again. We've created a GPO scheduled task for the effected users that runs every day. But this doesn't seem to work 100% of the time, and I have to wait until the task runs before I can deploy to their PC.

    I'm not sure if this is a Dell Hardware issue or a Windows issue, because the more permanent fix seems to be upgrading to Windows 1803. Any insight from the pros would be appreciated!
