Hello Experts,

I'm having a weird issue on a few of my servers.
I have a NAS that i connect to for backing stuff up. For some reason, i have lost the ability to access the NAS via it's name.
So, if i go to start run: \\backupNAS\   --> i get an error saying i don't have permissions to access this.
If i do: start run: \\\    --> i get in with no problems.

Can anyone shine some light on this please?

Thank you,
