Hi

Hi

We can access the file server in our office through its ip address,
but we cannot access it through UNC like \\servername.

get error
 "Logon Failure: The target account name is incorrect"  

I have tried..

Restarted the server
ran "ipconfig /registerdns"
corrected registry "hkey_local_machine\system\currentcontrolset\services\tcpip\parameters" by deleting and re-adding Domain, HostName and NV Domain, Nv HostName.
No DNS event errors.
