    Hi i'm having a strange issue with one of my users.

    We run a logon script to map network drives to a users machine during logon using the following schemea \\hostname\share$

    However for this one particular user onehostname cannot be resolved.
    All shares on another hostname are mapped successfully.
    And when mapping via IP ALL shares are mapped successfully.

    I'm successesfully able to Ping the hostname and I've tried flushing the DNS cache and restarting the machine but the problem persists.

    No other users or machines are reporting the issue.

    If you can offer any help or advice I'd be greatful

    Add the necessary permission for the user account who has the problem in the server for the share folder \\hostname\share$

    Thats not the issue the user is a member of Domain Users and all other Domain users can access the share. Also mentioned above the user has access via the \\IP Address\Share$ just not \\hostname\share$
