I am thinking this should be fairly simple but I can't find out how.

Is there a way to find out what server you connect to when you use the domain driven unc path?  Like <domain>\sysvol

Awesome thank you.  But now I have seen an issue.  I have a server named 100nas.  I can get to the shares by typing \\100nas in RUN.  Now when I type \\100nas.cbcb.local  , I don't get anything.  I checked my DNS settings just to see if they resolve differently.  But they both resolve to the same IP address.  When I type \\<ipaddress> I can see the shares.

Can I get some help with that, or should I open a new question?
what happens when you ping 100nas.cbcb.local ?
Also yes i guess you should open a different Question so other experts can see the problem as well with a new description ... when you open it i will help you fix the issue if some one doesnt bet mne to it hahah

Thank you will.  It seems to have worked it self out for now.  I am having weird issues with my network so I am sure I will be posting more later.  Yes btw I could ping 100nas and 100nas.cbcb.local both resolved to the same IP.  Just weird stuff.

Thanks again!
