Thanks for the response, Berni.  There's no DNS in this setup.  Clients are
able to access user homes and run logon scripts, and as you can see I'm
using the %N variable for both.  I'd guess that if server name resolution
were an issue, loading the home shares and logon scripts would fail as well.

I'm open to the idea of being wrong, though. :-)  How would I verify proper
resolution in this context?

Thanks much,
