Multiple Hostnames for Fileshares

This works in NT Server to assign multiple NetBIOS names. I can't remember if I tired it on any Client OS versions.

Probably won't work with SMB 2.0 (Win2k8/Vista)

HKEY_Local_Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters

Value: OptionalNames Type: REG_SZ Data: "Alias" If you make it a type REG_MULTI_SZ, you can add multiple aliases.

The aliases won't be visible in Network Neighborhood/My Network Places, but you can connect using that name.
