Alias in DNS Windows Server 2008 R2
Posted on 2011-02-12
I migrated my ftp server from an old Win 2003 server to Win 2008 R2. All is working well, except I'd like to be able to use the same share path as the older server. We have many applications that use the path \\oldserver\sharename and I'd prefer not to go into each one and change them.
I put an Alias in the DNS on the DC and it seems to work. When I ping oldserver, I get the return IP address for the new server. However, when I try to go to \\oldserver\sharename it says the network path does not exist.
