Go to the WINS tab in on your Local Area Connection then make sure you enable NetbIos over TCP\IP.

I am using the net view \\correctcomputername and I am a member of the domain and I am logged on as the domain admin.  The problems I am having is that this is on 2008 server share.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Make sure you uncheck register this with DNS on the external card under the DNS tab of the TCP\IP properties. Then do a ipconfig /registerdns on the server. Do you have WINS on your network?

We have no WINS on the network because all clients are Vista or XP so WINS is unneeded.  The DNS server is showing the correct internal ips already.

I can run a net view \\IPAddress and it works.  I can ping by name and cannot net view by name.

Did you check if NetBios over TCP\IP was enabled? Did you check the other solution if register this address with DNS is unchecked.

Yes the Netbios over TCP/IP is enabled.  The problem is with the way 08 does it shares and networking.  I have a second 08 server that is working just fine without any problems.  Unfortunately I did not build these therefore I don't have the steps taken to break it.

We have multiple 2008 machines without issues. The one issue we had was that we had two NICs one needed Register with DNS unchecked and NetBios over TCP\IP enabled. Once we disabled the second NIC we did an ipconfig /registerdns.

It appears that this network has had a lot of fingers in it and we have to decided to scrap and rebuild/ start fresh!!!  I appreciate your input today, but from what I have found today with this 1 of many problems I will get this fixed only to tackle another nightmare do to unknowledgable people installing servers.
