How to detect a virtual network name
Posted on 2008-06-17
I'm looking for a way to determine if a host name is actually a virtual name. For example if you have a two node cluster where the following network names and IP addresses are used:
and the cluster name and IP:
'Cluster' is a virtual name that point to the node where the quorum is located at any given time.
If you browse the network you get back all three names. I'd like to know if there is a way to determine if the host name is a 'real' host name or a virtual name.
Of course you don't have to use clusters to have virtual names. You can have the same thing with exchange on a single node.
