We removed LSMAIN, which held network shares such as \\lsmain\shares

Users are mad

New server is named, aptly enough, fileserver so shares are now \\fileserver\shares

Users are mad

Users are whining

Users want old naming scheme back

I want users to grow up

Users are not growing up

So, can I add an alias in DNS pointing lsmain.domain.local to fileserver.domain.local

so peeps can get to file shares using old naming scheme?

:)

Thanks
