Hi,

This is Windows10, Office 365, Windows 2016 server dan Windows 2019 environment.
There is a host or physical server named “BOBAHV02”. I Saw that there are 7 vm (virtual machine) at BOBAHV02; one of the virtual machine named “BOBAWEB2”
When I RDP (Remote Desktop ) to BOBAWEB2, there is a message “RDP can not find the computer “BOBAWEB2”
But When I RDP to “WEB2”, I Can login to it. When I checked the HOST of “WEB2”, It is BOBAHV02
Summary:
Host -->  BOBAHV02
Hyper- v Manager > I can see 7 virtual machines (including BOBAWEB2)
When RDP > I can not find the computer “BOBAWEB2”
But when RDP to virtual machine “WEB2” > I can login > When I check the HOST of WEB2, it is BOBAHV02
 
QUESTIONS:
 It seems the virtual machine “BOBAWEB2” was replaced by “virtual machine “WEB2”.
1) Why I can not see the virtual machine “WEB2” at the Hyper-v Manager of BOBAHV02?
2) It seems there is VIRTUAL name and ACTUAL name here; is it TRUE? If yes, how you make or create this name? Where and how do you make this "name changing"?(If possible, some steps please).
 
Thanks,
Tjie
