DNS Issue. Try doing a reverse lookup to confirm this but I can almost guarantee that the host names are not registered in your DNS. Just do a...

Ping -a

or whatever your IP is and it should resolve a host name like...

Pinging svr010.mydomain.local [] with 32 bytes of data:

If it does not then look at your DNS and add a Host (A) record to it for these computers. If they are already there there then you may also want to do an NSLOOKUP to make sure the host are resolving to the proper name server. You may not have your DHCP setup right with the right DNS.

Also, send us your IPCONFIG /ALL.
