    Vista and Network Appliance Servers

    We have a few NetApp Servers and when testing Vista I try to connect to these
    Netapp Servers I have an issue. When I click on START / RUN type in
    \\SERVER_NAME and click OK it will not connect to that server, it errors out.

    If I ping the SERVER_NAME by either NAME or IP Address it pings back, so
    that works good. The Vista PC can communicate with the NETAPP SERVER.

    If I click on START / RUN and \\IP_ADDRESS_OF_NETAPP_SERVER and click OK it
    works just fine. So DNS seems to be working by this working and being about
    to ping the name and/or ip address.

    If anyone knows why I can't just type in under RUN \\SERVER_NAME and have it
    connect to that server it would be fantastic.

    Thanks in advance....

    You need to update your netapp server software to the latest version.
