I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 machine connected to an IPv4 Windows network that cannot resolve the simple name of another server when trying to access a file share. If I try to browse to
\\SERVERNAME in Explorer I get
The network name cannot be found
However, other server names (from the same domain) work fine. I can also connect to the same server if I specify the FQDN, ie.
\\SERVERNAME.my.domain.com Pinging the simple name (
ping SERVERNAME) also works. Does anyone know what's wrong here?
