redirect or spoof netbios name
So I'm stumped here on how to retire one of the servers I have at work, we'll call it SERVE1 for short. SERVE1 has been running for a long time and is running 2K3 and use to act as a PDC and file server, the PDC and DC roles have been moved entirely off of it and to a new server (2k8). The next is the file server purposes, I have a new server, we'll call it SERVEFILE which is running 2K8 so I can eventually use DFS-R.
I need to migrate all the files off of SERVE1 to SERVEFILE, but there are many coded programs with hard coded paths to SERVE1 that we use and I no longer have the code... or the developer for that matter to fix it. The sloppy way that I can think of to accomplish this is to rename the new server the same as the old, but I may run into complications down the road I think... plus I want to do away with the old naming convention. When a UNC path such as \\SERVE1\UserFiles\ is called I need it to really look at \\SERVEFILE\UserFiles...
Any suggestions on how best to accomplish this?Mobile: Thinkpad T61 | WinXP Pro | C2D T8300 CPU | 3GB DDR2 | 320GB Hybrid SSD HDD | AGN & WWAN
