This may seem a little pedantic, but would it be possible to get something like "logon name = <NAME>"

This would enable us to set an alias NETBIOS name to appear when the PDC initiates a home users drive mount.

Presently it automatically sets the name of the host machine.

Our two options around this are

1. Change the DNS name of the hostname (boss doesn't want to do this)
2. Use a logon.bat entry using the alias name in NET USE (would be preferable to have the PDC provide the name and not rely on scripts that can change over time).

Feel free to tell me to sod off :-)
