Hi

I have  requirement that I thought DNS would help resolve. All Windows server 2003 with AD.

We have a remote server:
REMOTE-SERVER

From our HQ we moved  1 million fPDF files that our Lotus Notes system references (this is an FYI as issue has nothing to do with Notes). The issue is that all of those files have been coded in such a way that the ref to where they are stored is hard coded as:
\\HQ-SERVER1\PDFImages

to recode would take too miuch resource/time & money.

So my thinking was this:
Set up a 'PDFImages' Share on the REMOTE-SERVER
Move those files to that share and make sure Domain Users have correct access
Then create a DNS A Record for HQ-SERVER1 to point it at the IP of REMOTE-SERVER

I have tested that it work for:
\\REMOTE-SERVER\PDFImages
\\<REMOTE-SERVER>IP\PDFImages

However when I browse to (on the REMOTE-SERVER) \\\\HQ-SERVER1\PDFImages
I am presented with a log on dialog box. I have tried to use a usesr account - fails. I have trioed the domain admin account - fails.

I have tried using CNAME instead of A DNS record - same result!!

Any ides?

Thanks
Mark
