I've installed new Win 2003 server. Let's say DNS is newServerName.company.com
But client has some DOS Applications which was installed on old server with old network pathes

How to make work:
\\oldServerName\app\start.exe ?

I've already tried to put record on HOSTS file - didn't work

Please advise.

if you have WINS/DNS enabled in your network, do add static entry for the oldname to the ip address.

In addition, you could create an lmhost file (the netbios equivalent of the hosts file for DNS)
