I had a server go down. All the data has been restored to another server. Many procedures refer to the downed server by name in UNC. I have already added the downed server's IP address to the other server and can ping the old server name for the time being. However browsing using UNC using the downed server name does not work. I know I can edit the hosts file to hard code machine name to IP address but the clients all get reimaged frequently and there are many images that would have to be reworked.
I need the downed server name to be viable but point tot the other server that has had the downed server IP address added to it. Help.
