UNC Path using DNS alias (CNAME) on local server doesn't work

I have many windows server 2003 servers. On all of our file shares/SQL
servers we use CNAMES for easy DR changes and testing. Primarily we
only use DNS aliases from clients to the servers
We installed a new app that has a database of UNC locations. The app
uses these locations to do some file copies. The problem seems to be
that the server itself cannot access the \\myalias\myshare from
itself. Extremely strange.
When i try to go to run and type this UNC path using the alias on the
server itself i get prompted with a username/password dialog. Any
credentials i enter here fail.

we apply the disablestrictnamecheck registry fix to all our servers.

any ideas? SPN related, trying to find a free server to test this on.

thanks for any help.

How do I get the Fitness Chart for Men to work longer?
I have been using the Fitness Chart for Men Excel template to track my weight loss.

How do I extend this template so that it can track my weight for longer than one month? Prospect That will be quite a project. You can simply copy down to extend it then clear data from columns B through E below row 31 but..........

MFC / ATL Out Of Proc Server
Hello; I have an MFC SDI application that is also an out-of-proc COM server. The application uses several custom COM objects / ActiveX controls. When the application is used as a COM server and accessed in a stateless fashion. (I.e. Create / call / destroy ) eventually one of the ActiveX controls gets destroyed. I've walked stack and see that ExitInstance is called from DLLMain (not from the hosting application) I'm not sure how to continue researching this, I don't know how to prevent it?

Backups on Front-End Servers
Hi, Are Exchange Information Store backups important on Front-End E2K3 Servers where no user data and no Public Folder data exists? I'm thinking that it is acceptable to just backup the C:\ drive and the System State. Can someone point out a flaw with this approach? Thanks a lot. Mike The only issue would be that if the FE server is also an smtp gateway, it will be creating transaction logs. The solution to that (quite acceptable if you ask me) is to enable circular logging on the FE server only. The BE servers should not have circular logging enabled, but it is fine to do so on...

Checking delegate access from server

I'd really like to have a quick way of checking delegate access rather than asking each invitee or accessing their mailbox.

AD sync with Project Server resource and reusable Win accounts
Hello, Is it possible to use the AD sync with PS 2007 resources for temporary resources (such as external consultants) when the system administrator reuses these Windows accounts when such an external resource leaves? Thanks If you do this, Project Server will not be able to distinguish one user of the logon from another. All users will appear as one and accumulate data to the one account. Reusing logons is generally considered a very bad practice to begin with, so it's not surprising that Microsoft does not support this. -- Gary L Chefetz, MVP, MCT, MCITP msP...
