I have a question here. I've encountered a case where a computer is able to access a shared folder using smb: \\fileserver
However, when fileserver is pinged, there is no reply: ping fileserver.mydomain.com
What could be a possible explanation for this?
It seems that fileserver.mydomain.com cannot be resolved when using ping. But \\fileserver can be resolved.
I would think that the ping should be successful since accessing the network share using the domain name would mean that the name is resolved.
