Recently installed Windows Home Server 2011. For those that don't know, it runs on Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. Unfortunately, I cannot remote desktop to box by machine name I gave it. I set the computer name to during install to ATLAS. I have confirmed it is called ATLAS on the machine. No idea how, but even after I run ipconfig /flushdns and then run nslookup, I get the following:
nslookup atlas 127.0.0.1
nslookup server 192.168.1.68 (correct IP)
"ATLAS" machine name: No
"Server" machine name: Works
Any ideas how I can fix this or how it keeps setting the machine name to "server" ?
Update: Here are the results of two different ping tests. Notice that when I ping ATLAS, it doesn't have a DNS suffix.
