syncronisation problems after domain controller rebuild

We have just built a new Domain Controller (w2k3) which has replaced our SBS2000 box. Since doing so, some users are not able to syncronise their offline folders. The error message mentions "Access Denied". When you try and goto the run command and type \\servername\share, you only see the offline folder content. When you use the ip address of the serevr instead of the server name, you are able to see the shares on the server. It as if the client machine is still trying to contact the old sbs box despite the fact we've used the same name as the old sbs box and same ip address. Weird since some machines are ok and do not show any errors when syncronising the offline content.

You could delete the local cache and see if that helps

Im unable to do that at present since I removed the machine from the domain and Im now trying to readd it but it gives me an error "the network name cannot be found". Any ideas why I cannot see the domain (i can ping the domain controller)

Can you ping the domain controller by Name or IP?

Are you just using servername or servername.domainname.local
