Unable to Locate Server Across Network Using Server Name
Posted on 2011-10-17
Some people in my office are having issues where their mapped drives stop working for no reason. When I delete and re-add the drive mapping, it tells me that it cannot find the server.
I can enter the IP address for Server2900 and get it to work (\\192.168.1.7\\E$).
I need help understanding why I can find the server across the network using the IP Address, but not when I use the computer name of the server. Is there some DNS setting I need to make and, if so, how do I do this?
The servers are running Windows 2008 R2. The clients that experience the problem are running Windows 7.
