Cant map drives on a server

OK lets see if I can get this all in one try. we have a med. size network file serves print server etc. we have several shares and mapped drives. One user can map to shares on all servers but one. i get the path cannot be found or you dont have permission to access this error. i can ping the server but typing in the unc path and browsing will not work. i have unjoined and rejoined the domain, changed the computer name and logged on as a different user ( me - domain admin)
i have checked the share permissions and file security all are good. i have turn off the firewall stopped trend micro, when i type in just the server \\server  i get the network path was not found. 100 other users at this location can find the path just not this one?
Who is Participating?
try \\ip.of.the.server
make sure your permission on server side capable to client side, try to  ping server ip, and type this in your address bar \\ip_of_your_server  then type your server administrator user with password..

hope it helps.. ^_^
Only 1 user cannot access this server right?
I suppose the users are arranged by group? Does he belong to the group that has been granted access?

Thanks for all the help, here is what is happening today. I did the \\ip and that worked :) so i tried some more servers, one more worked using \\servername, but now the others arent, but they do using the \\ip.
so i can get to it and map it by using \\server ip\shared folder. But WHY cant I use the server name?
This is what i really want to know. Anyone have any ideas on this?
If you do (in command prompt) ipconfig /all the nameserver of all machines are the same? If not check your dhcp or machine estatic dns entry.
