I created a CNAME record (ACCOUNTS) in our DNS that points to host record (SERVER01).
I can ping the CNAME record and host record
However, when trying to browse to the CNAME \\ACCOUNTS I see an error...
You were not connected because a duplicate name exists on the network. Go to System in Control Panel to change the computer name and try again.
The machine generating the error is running Windows Server 2003 R2 (SP2 installed)
I've tested from Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 clients and they do not have the issue, however XP and other 2003 servers do
We do not use WINS and do not have a GNZ, there are no other records for "SERVER01" and the hosts file does not have anything in it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
