Access Share

I have a share on a server that some workstations can not access.
If accessing the share with the NetBIOS name for example: \\servername\private$ access is denied.
But if  accessing the share with FQDN example: \\servername.domain.com\privat$ access is granted.
This shows that ntfs rights and rights on shares are correct

If I add an extra share name in the same folder - eg NewPrivat$, it is possible to access Sharen.
with \\servername\Newprivate$

why can not I access the original share (privat$] on the fileserver on some workstations, but I can access the extra share (NewPrivat$) on the same folder

1. I would make sure your clients have the local domian in the DNS search path under the tcp/ip settings of their adapters
2. Sounds like weird behavior - on the server, Manage, shares, sessions: clear any open sessions the problem clients have hanging around, and try the troubleshooting again

I did re-install the workstation, because we could not find a solution.
