Windows::DNS Alias

This is a known issue with 2000 and 2003 servers.

When a client computer connects to a Windows 2000 or 2003 server using an alias, the client receives:
System error 52 has occurred.
A duplicate name exists on the network.
This error occurs when you attempt to connect to the server by using a CNAME alias that is created in the DNS zone:
net view \\alias.<domain>
where alias is a CNAME record that is created for the server in the <domain> zone. Because the server is not listening on the alias, it does not accept connections to that name.

Start – Run - Regedt32
Create the following DWORD Key manually.

Shutdown and restart the alias should work again.
