Windows Share Prompting for Password on Second NIC

I'm running a Windows Server 2008 server that is sharing a folder.  I have two NICs, each with different names assigned through my DNS server.  The reason behind this is to redirect traffic for specific purposes to specific NICs.  Other servers on my network can access the two different UNC paths to the same folder w/o any issues.  The problem is that while logged into the server, I can only get to the shared folder through one UNC path and not the other.  The name associated with the second NIC doesn't work while logged in.  It prompts for a logon.

Try this..
It is probably due to BackConnectionHostNames and DisableLoopBackCheck Registry keys. Typical behaviour when accessing SMB Share using an ALIAS.
