Alias for Domain Controller
Posted on 2010-11-29
I have a Windows-based license manager application that uses an encrypted form of a doman name and server name. My application is not localized and will not work with cyrillic characters. My problem is this. If my customer has a license server with Russian characters in the domain name then I am not able to install my license application, The server name can be replaced with an IP address so this is not a big deal. It's the domain name that I need to deal with. I want to know if it is possible to create an alias doman name. And is this dependant on the platform.
Or is there some other option. I can easily convert the application user interface, but with encryption this is painful. Thanks.
