\\pc name not accessible but \\pc name.Domain is accessible Server 2003

HI All,

Here is my problem.

I have recently upgrade from NT4 to server 2003.

The upgrade went well except, i am unable to access any of the share by
accessing the pc using \\pc name.
All the shares are available to me when i use the following
\\pc-name.domain

ie: \\home-pc -> throws \\pc-name not accessible
\\home.pc.homenetwork --> able to connect.

Does anyone have any idea why this may occur.


Thanks

XXXX@XXXXX.COM < XXXX@XXXXX.COM > typed:

Browsing requires NetBios over TCP/IP - and if you want to use that, you
should also use WINS (hybrid node / 0x8). In fact, if you were using NT
before, I have to imagine you were using WINS then or you'd have had a whole
host of problems. I'd also disable the computer browser service on all the
workstations.

Is NetBIOS enabled on your PCs?
Does everyone of them use the domain controller(s) as its DNS server?
Are they all domain members?
