System error 58 has occurred
Tthe specified server cannot perform the requested operation

Case 1: The user gets this error while accessing win vista shares from XP.
" system error 58 has occurred. The specified server cannot perform the requested operation."
both machines are in same domain. windows xp machine can view and access all other share except Resolution: Modify the authentication level on the Windows ista machine. To do that, please follow these steps:
1. GPedit.msc
2. Windows Settings. Expand “Local Policies” and select “Security Options”
3. Alternate : Type secpol.msc to get editor up then
4. Locate “Network Security: LAN Manager Authentication Level” in the list and double-click it.
5. Change the setting from “Send NTMLv2 response only” to “Send LM & NTLM – use NTLMv2 session if negotiated”

You may need to run gpupdate or reboot the Vista.

Case 2: It could a security software. The client get these error message: "The specified server cannot perform the requested operation" and "Not Enough Server Storage Is Available to Process This Command." After removing AVG, it works now.

Case 3: We had a similar case.  is only happening when accessing a Win7 x64 system from Windows XP (x86) clients. When using other Win7 x64 systems, there are no problems.

Resolution: Here's the solution for changes needed to Win7 to allow XP (pre Vista) clients to connect to shares and printers on the Win7 machine:
1) Start - Run (Windows - R) - GPedit.msc
2) In the Group Policy Editor window that opens, in the left pane, expand:
Local Computer Policy
- Computer Configuration
- Windows Settings
- Security Settings
3) click on "IP Security Policies on Local Computer" under that
4) In right pane, double click on SecNet RAS/VPN Client POlicy (the only entry)
5) In the new properties dialog that opens, in the Rules tab, scroll to the bottom of the list
6) check "<Dynamic>" Default response (earlier viersions of Windows Only)
7) click OK

Case 4: The solution that I have found is with SMB2... Apparently it doesn't co-operate well with XP (and older) systems, because they only support SMB1, and Win7 does not automatically switch from SMB2 to SMB1 when it's supposed to.

NOTE: This is just what I read in another thread on another forum (I'll try to find the link [I think this was it]: XP drops folders shared on Vista PC - Windows); I'm not sure how accurate the information is. All I know is that my XP computers would intermittently not connect with my Win7 computer at least several times a day, and now it has been about a week without problems. And my other Win7 computers also do not have any problems accessing each other.

To disable SMB2:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\LanmanServer\Parameters
[EDIT: You will most likely need to create this key; it's not there by default.]
[EDIT2: I attached the .REG file that I used. It's just an easier way of doing what's described above.]

Case 5: Had the same problem, here's how I solved this: under network properties check if Client For Microsoft Networks is installed or checked. If not use the install button and restart your PC.

Case 6: I found thsi one in the Internet:
"allocate resources accordingly. Set the following registry key to ‘1':
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\LargeSystemCache

and set the following registry key to ‘3':

Case 7: We received this message: "The specified server cannot perform the requested operation" when trying to join the domain.

Resolution: Delete the computer account in ADUC and re-join it to the domain/
