We had 3 laptops each having a vmware biztalk enviroment. this runs on a server 2008 and we used our doamin account to log in to them. all three virtual machines had the same name biztalkdev. and everything went fine with no problems (i know at least two of them were logged in at the same time.)
Now we replaced the three laptops with new ones, put on the virtual machines and the second person logging in had locked himself out (the domain has a trust violation error with the logon. This is solved by loggin in as admin and changing the domain from company.be to company but locks out the other two users) To top that off, the old machines now have the same problem as well and only one of the six machines can be in the domain.
Our network admin says it is due to all 3 vms having the same name but biztalk requires the servername in the projects and these get commited in svn. This means having three diffrent server names would mean everything we take something out of svn that we have to check and change all projects (after a few clients we have 12 projects, so this is still doable but it will only get worse.)
Although all the explanation about diffrent server names being impossible in the same domain, i don't get why it worked for nearly 3 weeks with all three servers having the same name. Is there trully no way to keep the server names of all three machines the same yet have all the acces on other domain locations?
