I asked Assign name to Hyper-V guest for Windows 10 host? to get a constructive response to the problem on how to get a host name for a client VM known to the host.
Another user then came by and closed as duplicate. Being a gold badge holder this took effect immediately. I suspect they did so without understanding the question fully.
Now I've tried to reopen and call moderator attention to this question, so I can get an actual response perhaps even a useful answer, but without prevail.
How should I approach this from here?
EDIT: The duplicate has been removed, without me getting to editing the question as suggested.
