Hi,

For Win2000 advanced SP3 server, one computer shared
directory named "sharedir". I want this computer have two
computer names. Both access to same directory, so that
when I access

\\OldName\sharedir
or
\\NewName\sharedir


In DNS -> Forward Lookup Zones --> DomainName --> add host
a) OldName(Physical Name of the server)
b) NewName(A new name)

Of course, OldName and NewName with same IP in DNS.

When I run "dir \\NewName\sharedir"

System error 52 has occurred.
A duplicate name exists on the network

What's happened ?

Thanks

What happened is that you didn't know that under the covers a netbios handshake
is occurring and it verifies the server name....

You can override that behavior by setting DisableStrictNameChecking in the registry.
