Windows VM Restore Issue

I recently ran into a problem where a number of Windows 2003 VM's would not restore. The VM host machine crashed and the Admins brought it back up on an alternate server. They recreated the VM's but when they would attempt to do a Point-In-Time restore they would fail with a File Not Found error. There was no ANS message. I think it had something to do with Active Directory or DNS, because when I used the VIRTUALNODENAME setting the restore worked fine. Anyone seen this or have insight into it?
