logon failure: target account name is incorrect

Having issues with a Citrix server allowing clients to map to a network drive on a particular server.

Citrix is trying to map a drive on a server that has DoubleTake running as a DR server. (But using IP and shared foler works, just not fqdn)
We know how to fix this in DNS but we don't want to fix this in DNS or with login script

We've tried disabling strict name checking and loopback checking on fileserver and citrix, only win2k3 can't browse fqdn, also added a host point on the hosts file

Does anyone have an idea why name won't resolve

Have you used SETSPN to add the extra names too?

setspn -a host/name-to-respond-to  realname
setspn -a host/name-to-respond-to.domain.local  realname

This is the MS document I referred to when having to respond to old names during a migration to a 2008 R2 box recently : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/281308
