2008 servers cannot connect to newly formated and reloaded server

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
We had a Windows 7 computer that we mapped a drive to through login scripts and our My Documents were also redirected there temporarily.  Obviously we needed a server OS so as soon as a license became available; I formatted and reloaded the former Windows 7 box with Server 03.  I deleted it from the domain and re-added it a few days later with the same name.  Everything seems to be fine except for all of our windows 08 servers and not able to connect to the newly reloaded server.  Windows XP, 7, and 03 servers can connect fine.  But 08 servers try for about 10 minutes and then give a “the specified network name is no longer available” error.
