Accessing CIFS shares - UNC seems empty

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

check if access based enumaration is turned on.  Turn off if enabled and check results
