DNS/Windows Explorer ResolutionLocked
I don’t know if this is WINS or DNS or WHAT. We’ve been tasked with a new naming convention. To avoid breaks in code, shares, maps,etc, I decided to rename the server but create an A record in DNS of the old server name.
I can ping the old server name. However, if I try to browse by name using a UNC path “example: \\oldservername” it fails saying server can’t be found. Should I enter a static WINS entry as well for the old server name?
