CIFS Server Name different from Netapp Hostname

Currently Being Moderated

Customer has a Win2000 fileserver and wants to migrate the data to a CIFS share on the FAS2050C.

The FAS2050 has joined the NT4 domain and customer is able to define shares from the Miscrosoft MMC.

However, in the NT4 domain, it shows up with the FAS Hostname. Which is what we gave during cifs-setup.


My Query is:

Is it possible to have the CIFS name different from the FAS hostname?

If yes, what are the pros and cons of doing such a thing?

Is it a FAS level command change or a Windows Domain level configuration?


Pardon my ignorance, never worked on windows!!!


Also, for migration will

#robocopy \\source \\destination /DCOPY:T /COPYALL /MIR /S .............do the trick for us ( robocopy version  XP026 to be installed on windows 2000)
