Fileshares won't work with name but will with ip address? DNS ok.
I have a server called "backupserver2" it's ip address is "10.44.8.6/22" I've disabled the firewall for testing and the issue still occurs. If I put "\\backupserver2\" into the run command the resource is not found. if I put "\\10.44.8.6\" it works fine.
I've done all the DNS testing I can think of. The forward and reverse lookups are correct on both DNS servers. The nslookup confirms the ip address. you can ping the server name and it resolves to the correct ip address and pings. I've flushed the DNS anyway on both the server and client and the issue remains?
All other server shares on other servers work correctly..
Anything I haven't though of?
Oh I've rebooted the server and tried other clients and it still happens. it is a 2003r2 server and the clients are win7 and server2008
