    Can you try and map a network drive from old server to new serve? E.g.

    net use x: \\new_server\share /user:domain\user_name password

    Does this work? If it doesn't can you try

    net use x: \\\share /user:domain\user_name password

    Where is IP of your server.

    Well it looks to me that for some reason your old server is not part of
    domain any more. What happens if you go to Site and Services and try to
    replicate servers manually? Is this successful?
