If you do an nslookup of the fqdn on the machine you are trying to access that server from do you get a valid result?

Is the machine you are trying from on the same domain?

You need to give more info

Check the DNS FQDN guid if you are able to ping... if you are not then check the firewall, are you able to ping the machine with the name? Does it failed?

Yes, the question answer is still valid, is the client machine in the same domain and on the same subnet?

Are there any prior DNS errors listed?
Are able to access the shares with only domain name?
Can you give dcdiag /q results from the server and dcdiag /test:dns > dns.txt file and attach the file here?

Waiting on your answers..!!

Good Luck..!!

ping available,
nslookup of FQDN gives result, i do get back ip address of the server from DNS server,

nslookup result
C:\Users\administrator.DOMAIN>nslookup
Default Server:  st.domain.local
Address:  172.30.0.40

> server.domain.local
Server:  st.domain.local
Address:  172.30.0.40

Name:    server.domain.local
Address:  172.30.0.20

Are there any prior DNS errors listed?  don't know where to look for that

-Are able to access the shares with only domain name?
I can access share folder through domain name, but still the porblem i have "quickbooks" can not access the file porperly as it is FQDN, have to access back through IP.

-Are able to access the shares with only domain name?
there is share access with full permission, user can access file, change and delete.

-dcdiag /q command is not available.

I would like to disable all firewall on windows 2008 server, and test it to make sure Firewall is not causing issues, because server is joined to domain, Firewall is grade out, how to disable it, does it has to be from Registory? as don't want to do it from GPO.

Kindly check the NETBIOS over TCPIP is enabled on the client machine please. Check it from the command prompt using ipconfig /all command using the elevated command prompt and send the results.

Also, are we able to open the shares using the \\domain.local from the client machine.. Check the event viewer and see if we have any NETLOGON error messages, if yes, if available then please paste those.

Good Luck..!!
