Browse a Windows Server 2008 through an alias with explorer

When migrating a server to a new one, you may want to create an alias with the old server name to the new one.
DNS will resolve it, but browsing through explorer will fail.
In order to solve this, start RegEdit and deploy :
Then create a new DWORD value called : DisableStrictNameChecking and set it to 1.
Restart your server.
