    Unanswered: MSDTC name resolution - two servers same NetBIOS name

    Is there any way to set up name resolution for DTC when there are two servers with the same name? I have three servers - two production systems named "SQL" and an archive system "DMART". I want to run DTC procedures to archive data from both SQL's to the DMART. Is there any way to set up the DMART so it can properly resolve the names from each of the SQL's? They are on separate networks, but unfortunately have the same NetBIOS name.

    When two computers that are not running in the same domain use MSDTC for communication and for distributed transactions, the mutual authentication may fail.

    And I don't think its possible to set name resolution if the BIOS is similar.

    Can the #DOM: option in the lmhosts file be used to specify different networks for hosts with the same BIOS name? Will DTC recognize the #DOM: option during name resolution?

    Added after an entry to associate that entry with the domain specified by domain. This keyword affects how the Browser and Logon services behave in routed TCP/IP environments.

    Still I'm bit unsure about the approach, may try and take help of network admin.
