DNS Issue

Im currently Having issues on a 2008R" server where by i cannot search folders shared by another 2008r2 server. This is important as the files are being shared by a server running shadow protect, but cannot be seen by the server thats supposed to be imaged by it.
so lets call this server 1 and the shadow protect server2.
server 1 can ping server 2 by ip, name and FQDN - cant nslookup server2 (DNS request timed out), cant search for shares on server2 by IP or name.
server 2 can ping server1 by ip, name and FQDN, can nslookup itself and server1. can browser shares from server1.
i should also mention server1 is a DC and DNS server.

Any Ideas would be appreciated.

sorry guys Answered my own question again.
Net bios was disabled on the NIC, set it back to default and i can now access the shares on server 2
