Hi,

we have a DR site with NetApp 3210 storage system, and im trying to configure cifs shares in the remote site, after successfully running cifs setup on the NetApp, i created a few shares.
 
when im trying to access the filer threw UNC (\\filername) i see an empty folder (like there no shares at all),
but if i enter the fqdn (\\filername.domain) or the ip adrees of the filer, i get the correct view of the shares.

it seems like a DNS issue but i checked the dns configurations and it seems to be configured properly.
we have two 2008r2 dc's in our local site and two dc's in the DR site - all in the same forest. about the NetApp - its a fas 3210 runing Dataontap 8.

if you need any more info fell free to ask.
Thanks.

What happens when you do \\toaster\share

Could be access based enumeration or something else
