DNS server, configure so a server can be known by two names?
Posted on 2007-04-06
I have a server which has a shared folder, I need to share this out, but I need to keep the server name private, what is the best way to do this, should I setup an entry in DNS with the new name and reference the IP address of the server, I tried this and setup a new host record, but when I ping the name I get no responce, the ip address is not found, do I have to setup other DNS entries to make this work?
If the dns solution works, am I correct in sayting that I will be able to ping the server by both names?
Or is there a better way to go about this?
