Computer Name Alias

By fackeid ·
Hey one my clients question
- He is having one computer
Name = ABCD
Ip =

When he pings for ABCD it works fine
ping ABCD ...
....... Successfully (

Now he wants to change the computer name for his reference only and NOT ACTUALLY RENAMING THE COMPUTER.

I mean he want to use "sarvesh" instead of "ABCD" as a computer name FOR HIS REFERENCE ONLY.

then he is going to ping like

ping sarvesh
.... Successfully (

I remind he is not Physically changing the computer name from ABCD to sarvesh.

Anybody please tell me how to make it possible.

host file

Sounds like a host file on his PC resolving sarvesh to abcd will do the trick, unless he uses more than one computer. If he uses different computers you will have to have your DNS controller resolve it that way. but then it will do it for everyone. ABCD should still work as well.
