I have Win2000 AD on my Environment.

I have configured a new CNAME record on my DNS and to point it to a host
called hosts.abc.org (win2003).

I can resolves the new CName perfectly.

However when I do \\cname.abc.org it gives me an error..
"you were not connected because of a duplicate name exists on the network"

I can do \\hosts.abc.org no problems but not on the alias.. As far as I know
I never use that  name before.

How can I fix this??

thank you

Where it is???
