Windows 7 client can map drives and access data when mapped this way:
1.      //IPAddress/sharename
2.      //NetBIOSName/sharename

AND can map drives but CANNOT access data when mapped this way (gets "Access is Denied"):
3.      //FQDN/sharename

-------------------------------

Windows 8 client can map drives and access data when mapped this way:
1.      //IPAddress/sharename

AND can map drives but CANNOT access data when mapped this way (gets "Access is Denied"):
2.      //NetBIOSName/sharename
3.      //FQDN/sharename


Any idea what's happening?
Thank you for your time in advance!

Does this happen for all users or just a few?

I would be checking the DNS suffix on the network adapters and also to ensure that the default primary suffix is appended to the name.

Also I have seen a lot of issues in relation to DNS issues due to CSC (client side caching). Not so much for Windows 8 but for Windows 7 I have.

If it is just a few then it is probably client side caching.

Actually, we had already had the user issue the command (& reboot): REG ADD "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\CSC\Parameters" /v FormatDatabase /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
same issue remained.

How are you imaging your machines? I have also seen this issue if the machines are not properly sysprep into the domain environment. Are you using sysprep to pre-stag the computer?
