Mapped Network drive - "The target account name is incorrect"
Posted on 2014-08-26
I have a strange issue, that i cant seem to find a fix for it.
i demoted one of the old server and setup a new server with a new name e.g server2 the old name of the old server was server1.
beacsue its a file server and users already have drive mapped under the old server name, i created a Alias CName and pointed server1 to server2. This works fine for all OS except when i try to map a drive on 2003 server e.g \\server1\drive it throws that error?
note- if i map it with a new name \\server2\drive on server 2003 it works! (so its the Alias CName that it dont like?)
im sure there is some sort of registry edit i need to edit on server 2003 wich should fix this issue?
