I have one server running server 2008 that cannot "see" one other server by name - only by ip address. When I type \\otherserver - I get a "windows cannot access \\otherserver" error. However, when i type \\192.168.20.8 it is fine.
I have successfully pinged the other server using both name and ip - no problems. Different servers(non running server 2008) can connect to the other server using the name and my server 2008 machine can connect to all other servers by name.
It seems to be a problem just between these two and only going in the one direction. I have turned off the firewalls on both servers.
