At the moment, I have 2 servers (serve1 and serve2). serve1 is old and data is small enough to move to serve2.
serve1 = Win 2k3 serve2 = Win 2008 R2
The problem is I need to keep the serve1 name active as it is in some physical documents that I'm told can't be changed. I need to keep serve2 as serve2 as this is the primary file share and would disrupt many people if I change the netbios name.
So, bassically, what I need to do is map serve1 to serve2 when someone enters the path.
ie: ¥¥serve1¥SharedDocs -> ¥¥serve2¥Shared_Documents
I imagine this will need to be done on my DNS (windows DNS services), but for now, I want to test locally via hosts file before editing DNS.
If someone could let me know how to do both the local hosts file and the DNS, that would be great. I've been searching this a lot and can't find the right solution.
