DNS alias can be used in Explorer only with a trick - disadvantages?


  • Hello,
    we could not get access to a server using the DNS alias in Windows Explorer but pinging that name or using it to get a website via HTTP from the IIS on the server or connecting to SQL Server on that server worked properly. After using the following registry hack, it worked also for UNC paths in Windows Explorer:;en-us;281308&sd=RMVP

    I found out that it also works with Windows Server 2008 (R2):

    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters
    • Value name: DisableStrictNameChecking
    • Data type: REG_DWORD
    • Radix: Decimal
    • Value: 1

    Are there any known problems or disadvantages if I use that trick?
    Thanks & regards,
