    Help me make my SMB shares visible on the network again

    Ok, so i have a problem that i need some help with. I use a PC with Windows 10 Pro and after updating to Creators Edition (1703) i can no longer see my SMB shares on the network with my media players, for example i use a Oppo blu-ray player and this can no longer see the shares from my PC. I found the reason described in this thread and it turns out that the Creators update from Microsoft is the cause for this issue.

    But i did find a solution from a user in this thread who suggested to try and change the "network ID" from business network to home network.
    Controlpanel --> System & Security --> System --> Change settings in computer name, domain and workgroup --> network ID --> Click the "this computer is not part of a business network".

    This helped and now i can see my shares on my mediaplayer again BUT the problem is that this only works until i restart my computer and after restart, the shares are not showing anymore and if i go into network ID again, the settings is back to business network.

    How do i set this to permanently stay on home network instead of business network?

    Fyi, i use a VPN service, could this be the cause for the network setting to revert back to business after restart?

    By design, virtual terminates when the light goes out!

    Perhaps, as with virtual ram drives and virtual machines (running a separate operating system), there is a way to 'save the data' of the setup before turning out the lights?
