I think MS just did us (and themselves) a disservice.

You're right, It also likes the IP in addition to the netbios name,
I should have included that. But it won't let you redefine the name in
but that's because it threats the IP as it's allowed netbios name as well.

defining a name agains an IP which is _not_ the hostname will not work.

This is wrong. For using the second set of credentials just use the IP for
connecting as was already stated:

True. Read MS KB Q173199.

Needlessly complicated.
