Preserving Old UNC Share Names

Bulletin: 111007

Software Effected:
ServerMigrator Resemble Server Edition

I would like to know how I can maintain the same UNC share names to the new server after a server migration.

Perserving old server UNC Share paths after a server migration.
Once you have completed your server migration. You must turn the old server off or disconnect it from the network.

On your DNS and WINS Server add or modify the entry for the old server name using the new server IP address

Using ServerMigrator Multi Name feature add the old server name to the new server

Select the new server in the list then from:
Menu > Server Tools > Add Multiple Netbios Names to this Server
Enter the old server name without the \\
Click OK

You may have to reboot the server for the name to take affect.

Also see if you are having issues with the server name showing up as a duplicate there is a registry fix
