[Samba] Unable to map network drive using server name

Running samba on AIX 6.1. Mapping share on windows 7 workstation.
My share will only map using the ip address, not by server name.
smbclient -L //<servername>/testarea on the unix box is successful
When I run a net view command I receive a system error.
C:\Users\Desktop>net view \\<servername>\test<file:///\\%3cservername%3e\test> area
System error 53 has occurred.
Is the problem with my samba config or possible a network issue? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
