I would like to thank everyone who assisted me with this problem.  It turns out that the problem was caused by the fact that we were running selinux on the server.  Once it was disabled the share was accessible.

Thanks John,

I just removed the "." , changed the workgroup name to covecapcom but I am still getting the same errors in the log file when I attempt to connect to either of the shares from a windows client.

Network names with a . in them are not supported. Well unless you are
talking about an ads realm.
