    3 x Win10 1803, RHL 8.0, Ubuntu 10.04

    What worked for me...

    I have 3 Win 10 recently updated to 1803, and 2 older Linux SMBs (2.2.5 & 3.4.7) on my home network. File Explorer on 2 of the Win PCs could see and access shares on all 5. One PC's File Explorer could only see its own shares under Network. All Win PCs had all 4 services running (as mentioned previously) and the two that worked had SMB 1.0 Client enabled (had not been disabled by 1803). The one that did not work SMB 1.0 was completely disabled. Enabled SMB 1.0 Client and Server on all Win PCs and now all is well (except for the usual permissions problems that always have to be fought through). All Win PCs can see and access shares on all 5 systems.

    MS should had kept Windows for Workgroups for home networks, worked for me and I loved it.

    I've been struggling with this same issue all week, and most of the fixes have proved temporary.

    I've done the Function Discovery Pub / Host service fix, which did solve the problem for 15-20 minutes. In the middle of transferring files, the connection broke. Restarting the two computers and an ipconfig /flushdns caused them to work for another 30 minutes or so.

    I then disabled password protected sharing, made sure both computers were set to private network, and confirmed that the "Everyone" group had access. The two computers worked fine and could see each other for the rest of the evening (about 6 hours). However, after turning them off last night and back on this morning, I'm back to them not being able to connect to each other.

    Both computers have been rolled back to before the April 2018 update, but the issue still persists. I don't want to, but is the only solution at this point to assign each desktop a static IP in the router? Neither PC had their IP change this morning, so I'm not sure why the connection broke yet again. IPconfig /flushdns didn't solve the problem this time.

    I can SEE both PC's through the "Network" menu, but when I try to connect it'll say Network Path Cannot be Found.

    I appreciate any input. It's frustrating me that I'll get it fixed, and then it'll stop working shortly after even though no changes were made.
    Just wanted to jump in here and say that this is precisely the experience I've been having with one my client's networks (I'm a tech consultant with 1000s of clients). He's running Sage 100 Contracter SQL (Master Builder) and only intermittently is the file share accessible to one of the recently-updated client PCs. Both machines are on 1803. I've tried enabling the two services mentioned and it intermittently stops functioning regardless.

    I'll keep everyone posted regarding the solution -- but right now this one is absolutely driving us insane.
