Hi there

Has the server blocked the SMB ports (445 etc). I assume you CAN connect to network drives on the server.

I think a lot of people are getting away from using NETBIOS or things like that to resolve host names.

Cheers

Are all computers running the Pro or Enterprise edition of Windows? Does the IT LAN manager have the correct scripts and GPO pushed out to all machines?

Yes sir, what do you think it may cause that?
What may cause it? You have to be clear in the answer. Who handles the LAN at your work, or is this a place like a Boy's & Girl's club, that there is not one specific person. If it is you, I would suggest getting the appropriate book on Windows AD. Microsoft Technet has a lot of good info online. You can also go to slipstick.com for info.
