+ 0 Votes DNS doesn't deal with folder shares CG IT 7 years ago sorry but DNS is name to address mapping and not shared resource mapping. DFS deals with shared folders. + 0 Votes but ..... lowlands 7 years ago you could achieve it in DNS, sorry CG :)But it will depend on your infrastructure.If you're in a AD domain, and your client computers use DNS. Creating a DNS alias for A that points to the ip of B.However this will only work if server A no longer exists! Don't create a DNS alias for the server if it is still online. In that case CG's option is a better way to go. + 0 Votes Disable strict name checking if using an alias Aakash Shah 6 years ago If you decide to create an alias such that A refers to B in DNS, remember to disable strict name checking in Windows:http://support.microsoft.com/kb/281308/en-usThis is because, by default, you can only a share using \\real_name\share and not \\alias\share. Disabling strict name checking will allow you to use \\alias\share to access the share.
