Cname not being found on the destination server

Hi, i have a problem with a cname to a local server on windows 2003

I have a server called SNELL and a CNAME called SQLBACKUPS pointing to SNELL

from any machine on the network i can do a "NET VIEW \\SNELL" or "NET VIEW \\SQLBACKUPS" and it works fine

but if i try doing this from the server SNELL then "NET VIEW \\SNELL" works fine but "NET VIEW \\SQLBACKUPS" returns a system error 5 has occurred access is denied.

Thanks in advance
