I retired a server from service on our domain over the weekend. there are a number of shortcuts on the network pointing to the old name, so i created a CNAME in DNS pointing to the new server as a work around until I could repair everything.
Computer on the domain come up with the error "you were not connected because a duplicate name exists on the network" I have confirmed that a duplicate name does not exist, and an NSLOOKUP returns the correct information for the cname.
If I attempt to browse to the old server name from a computer that is not on the domain, it connects correctly. We do not have a WINS server, and all of our servers are 2003 or 2008. The PCs are XP or Windows 7.
I have tried the registry entry found in the MS KB, but it has had no effect. any help would be greatly appreciated.
