NetbiosAlias

You can add multiple machine name aliases to your Windows box. This won't impact anything doing a name lookup via DNS, but can come in handy enough for interal usage.

From:
Create an alias instead, by editing:

HKEY_Local_Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters


Add Value: OptionalNames REG_SZ String: “Alias”. If you make it a type REG_MULTI_SZ, you can add multiple aliases.

I believe a reboot is required to kick this into action.
