My servername is server.abc.net

I created a cname (station.abc.net) and pointed to the server.abc.net

when I try to access \\station i'm prompted for username/password.

that is b/c when you use \\servername\ you are using netbios names, not DNS names.  Create all the DNS cnames you want, but it will not affect you accessing resources by \\servername\ at all.

remember, every domain and host in a windows domain has both a DNS name and a Netbios name.
