When I access shared folders by \\servername it is showing the below error.
But if access it by ip it is working fine. and that even not all the pcs only 4/5 pcs.

'\severname is not accessible you might not have permission to use this network resource....contact the administrator....
Logon failure : the target account name is incorrect'

Your help is appreciated.

Are you sure servername is resolvnig the right IP?
You can try also mapping a folder to some drive
In command prompt type
net use X: \\servername\sharedfolder /USER:username_which_has_access password

Open in new window

I need that to be accessed by server name as it is an application server.
application is running  through the folders in that server.

Might be a problem with the computer account. Try disjoining the computer from the domain, delete computer account in Active directory, and then join domain again.

Also, try flushing dns ("ipconfig /flushdns" in command prompt) on PC's which are having trouble accessing \\servername.

Kent is on this one. You can also try an entry in your hosts file.

Thanks for all your kind support.
