Access to Shares Using Domain vs Local Credentials

I have a Windows 2008 R2 server that I want to make a second domain controller in my domain.  

Currently, a share is accessed by using a local account with the IP address (x.x.x.x\user).  This works fine.  However, once I promote the machine to a domain controller, the local accounts will be disabled.

I created an account in the domain (domain\user) and gave it access to the share, but for some reason, when I try to access the share, I get "access is denied".  The machine accessing the share is not on the domain (accesses via VPN).

In summary:

This works:
net use X: \\\Share Password /User:\phnfax

This doesn't work:
net use X: \\\Share Password /User:domain\phnfax

Appreciate any help.
