DNS problems and now some PC can't connect to \\servername

Last Modified: 2018-05-10
Hello Everyone,
We had some DNS issues in our company today. The problems are mostly resolved.
Some PC's CAN connect to \\servername but other PC's CANNOT. Those PC's that cannot are able to connect to \\ipaddress of the server.
So classic DNS problem, right?

The PC's that cannot connect to \\servername see an empty window when \\servername opens
But \\ipadress of the server opens all the shares fine.

I have flushed the dns cache (ipconfig /flushdns) but no success. Does anyone have any advise for me?
