Alias dns on netbios name to access share

if you need to access both \\server and \\server3 which point to the same server, you won't be able. You will get an error message, saying there is a duplicate name on the network.

This is documented on a MS KB 231208: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/281308/en-us

You will need to set the DisableStrictNameChecking.

FYI, i tested it on a Windows 2003 cluster (file server) with success
