    I have a server that holding data share .Its name is data_srv joined to mypc.com
    I already created Host name in dns for the server called casreports.
    When I went to users and traing to did shortcut by using new name \\casreports
    there is a message "\\casreports is not found"
    I need to use the new name and i do not want to change the server from data_srv to casreports.

    Can you help me to resolve the problem, please.

    You need to create an ALIAS (C record IIRC) in DNS mapping CASREPORTS to data_Srv

    Then check you can ping CASREPORTS
