I have a netapp filer named filertemp (192.168.80.2). this is a backup filer. my prod filer is filerprod. If i put an entry in the hosts file of my windows 2008 r2 server that says:
whenever i use an UNC path (\\filertemp\sys1) it says that the server cannot perform the requested operation. If i use telnet or HTTP and access filerprod it works and goes to the filertemp.
I'm not sure why it wont let me access it. I even setup an additonal NetBios name on the filer using filerprod but it still doesn't let me access.
one thing to note is that our linux servers have no problem accessing it using the name filerprod but having it pointed to the filertemp IP.
