    My company bought a new iMac 2 weeks ago.
    I have joined to AD domain and verified that the network server settings are the same as our windows PC such as its DHCP, DNS and Gateway.
    Every time in order to access the servers, we have to key in their server IP address instead of the server name.
    Based on this symptom, I guessed it is because the server names are not able to be resolved.

    Can anyone advise?

    Can you please try rephrasing your problem with more details.

    There's a lot of assumptions that's been made that you think we know how you've set things up or know what server you're trying to access.

    Please provide network configs (including WINS), also what happens when you open up a cli and try to ping via a user friendly name?
