Share /Network drive problem

All of a sudden for 2 days, workstations on my network are having intermittant problems connecting to share drives one of my Windows 2003 servers.   I can ping the server just fine and remote into it as well.  
But if I try to access the share drive  via its IP  ex: \\192.168.x.x\Shared... it does not find it for some reason and then it does as a while. It is not consistant and comes and goes on.  
If i try to access the same share via the server name  ex \\servername\Shared... No problem accessing it.    
Problem there is a program that needs to acces the shard drive and has the ip mapped to it so i cant put the server name

Any idea what could be the problems?  Nothing as have changed on the network
Any help would be appreciated

Is that server using a static IP or is it using DHCP?

The server is using a static IP.  It has been the same IP for years now.  Dont understand what could have changed.

Are there any event log entries that stand out around the time of the problem?

Does reboot works every time?  If so, it is session expiration.

I was unable to reboot the server until last night as staff are using it all day generally.  I rebooted and so far it seems ok, but I checked the event log and this new error has been shown happening ever since I have the share drive issue.



Application popup error. An I/O operation initiated by the Registry failed unrecoverably. The registry could not read in, or write out, or flush, one of the files that contain the systems image of rgistry.  

I have no idea is that error is realated to my issue.

After the reboot, I have not seen that error...so far.
