Logon failure: the target account name is incorrect


One of our windows 8 system is not accessible through network via its name if we try via IP it is accessible. other system working fine with no issue.

try flush DNS, disable antivirus, turn off firewall.register netbios.

Thanks Aditya

try following.

1. ping with FQDN name
2. try to access the server with unc path \\abc\

if both not works then check the A/Host record of your windows 8 in DNS.
