I have 2 child domains and will need to be able to access folders on child domain 2 from child domain 1.  If I enter \\hkfile\bqcorp1 which is a folder on the f drive of the hkfile server I get logon failure: the target account name is incorrect.

However if I enter it as \\FQDN\bqcorp1 it works fine.  However users who have permissions mapped already to shortcuts using \\hkfile\bqcorp1 will all need to be recreated so I'm wondering if there is a way to allow me to browse without having ot use the FQDN?

This error normally occurs if the secure channel is broken
if its DC the replication also will fail run repadmin /replsum to check replication

A) If the server in question is DC then follow below article

Secure channel between the DC’s broken
http://sandeshdubey.wordpress.com/2011/10/02/secure-channel-between-the-dcs-broken/

B) If its a member server then just remove computer from domain then delete computer object from ADUC and then re-add the server to domain

The domain I am on is mixed 2003/2008.  The domain where the member server (file server) I'm trying to access is 2008 R2.  Can I create the zone on that child or would it have to be on mine since I can only access it via FQDN?

I will try rejoining the file server to the domain as I can access the domain controller for that domain via \\asdc1\c$.  It is just the file server I have to use the FQDN for.

Have you checked the event logs on the 2008R2 file server for errors?
Any errors on on your DC'S regarding the remote file server?

turns out there were 2 instances of the server in AD so had to hack it out of SPN and then started working
