Errors encountered : " remote server is unavailable"

	I'm currently using samba2.04 on HPUX 10.20 with client connections
from Win NT and Win 2000. Intermittently, the NT/Win2000 clients cannot
resolve the server name. They encountered the error "remote server is
unavailable". However, if the clients were to connect using the IP address
of the server, the connection is established. When we testing "ping" from
the client to the server, the client can resolve the hostname to ip address.
Has anyone encoutered this problem before .... Any advise on how to resolve
it ??

thanks & rgds,
