I just refered to Hugo's posting regarding perfomance.

You might try. You either need some sort of name resolution via an
internal DNS Server, that provides these information, (IMHO the best way
to do it), the local hosts file or you have to use the IP of the server
when creating the ODBC entry on the clients. But this is really simply a
name resolving problem.
