I've created a new Cluster Server with the FileServer Service enabled. Everything is working good, until I need acess my shared folders using an IP address.
All of my users map the network path by \\FileServerClusterName\SharedFolder and it is working fine. But I've got some systems that aren't in my local network (we don't have domain trusty) and need to access my shared folders using an IP Address connection as \\IPAddress\SharedFolder but I don't see any shared folders using this kind od connection.
Someone have this trouble? Able by dnsname and unable by Ip Address.
I'm using Windows Server 2008 R2 FileServer Cluster Service.
Thanks for your attention.

You might want to start with reading http://blogs.technet.com/b/askcore/archive/2009/01/09/file-share-scoping-in-windows-server-2008-failover-clusters.aspx to see how things have changed in regards to file share coping when moving from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008 clustering.
However, domain trust should not be necessary for a DNS resolution. You can readily put a DNS for the file share entry in the non-trusted DNS that points to the file share name. Then you don't need to have the users remembering an IP address.

Thank you for your answer. But my point is: I'm not talking about users, it's a legacy system that use an TCP connection to transf some files in the network, and to be worst it's in a different network.
I don't understand, why can't I set my shared folders to be visible when I'm using and IP connection. It should be an option.
There is any way to map it without a cname?

The referenced blog explains why you can't use an IP address anymore.
Legacy systems - the bane of implementing correct programming practices. <grin> So are you saying that the TCP connection is making a connection to a \\xx.xx.xx.xx\share instead of a \\ClusterResource\share? I'm not quite following you because I don't see how a cname entry would change that as all a cname entry does is give an alias to the cname. If the program is using a fixed IP address, I don't see how that buys you anything.

This is now possible with Windows Server 2012. See this blog for more details:
